Pitt Hosts Talk On Racism Among Asian Americans

 PITTSBURGH—Sumie Okazaki, associate professor of counseling psychology at New York University, will deliver a free public lecture titled “Race, Racism, and Mental Health in Asian American Communities” at noon Oct. 27 in Pitt’s Center on Race and Social Problems (CRSP), School of Social Work Conference Center, 20th floor, Cathedral of Learning, 4200 Fifth Ave., Oakland. Registration is not required; lunch will be provided. 
 
Okazaki’s talk is part of the Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC Fall 2010 Speaker Series at CRSP.
 
An accomplished educator, author, and researcher, Okazaki investigates the impact of immigration, individual differences, and racial status on the mental health of Asian Americans. Her research focuses on the lives of Korean American teens and their immigrant parents in Chicago; she also researches Korean families’ pursuit of cosmopolitan identity in the context of a global educational marketplace.

Okazaki is associate editor of the journal Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology. She has coedited two books: Asian American Psychology: The Science of Lives in Context (American Psychological Association, 2002) and Asian American Mental Health: Assessment Theories and Methods (Springer, 2002), and is coediting a third, tentatively titled South Korea’s Education Exodus: The Life and Challenges of Early Study Abroad, about young students from Korea who migrate to English-speaking countries for language education.

Okazaki is vice president of the Asian American Psychological Association and has been the recipient of a number of emerging-professional awards.

Okazaki received her doctorate from UCLA and has held teaching positions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
 
CRSP’s annual Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC Fall 2010 Speaker Series provides an opportunity for faculty, students, and members of the community to engage in race-related discussions of mutual interest. Two other lectures are scheduled through December.
