E31: Intergenerational Wisdom as Wealth: Navigating Systems for Immigrant Families
Trauma Report writer Elizabeth Liu speaks with clinical psychology Dr. Sally Chung in this episode exploring the concept of intergenerational wealth not just as physical assets, but as knowledge and wisdom on how to navigate systems integral to society. Understanding the barriers that immigrant families face is important, as the lack of knowledge in educational, economic, and power systems can hold great disadvantage across generations. In addition, individuals who encounter these barriers often grow up facing the additional challenge of integrating multiple cultural identities. Dr. Chung explains how we can bridge these gaps through community, awareness, and providing accessible services.
