Asian Mental Health Collective would like to invite you join our online workshop: Impostor Syndrome & First-Generation Immigrant Communities, lead by Sara Stanizai, LMFT.
What is impostor syndrome & how does it impact bicultural communities?
You may have heard the term “impostor syndrome” and may even suspect that you have it. Feeling like a fraud among your coworkers or friends? Doubting your qualifications? Struggling with self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy no matter how much you achieve? If the answer is “HELL YES” you might be one of the 70% of Americans who report experiencing impostor syndrome.
And no, you’re not just imagining it – You may also notice that it impacts you differently from your White/American peers. How can you navigate these feelings and stay connected to a family or culture that seems to make it worse?
In this workshop, we will learn exactly what impostor syndrome is, how to tell if you have it, why it affects certain communities in specific ways, and what you can do about it (with or without therapy).
