The overarching goal of the video is to demonstrate a culturally competent approach to addressing the stigma of mental illness in Asian-American patients. The video is comprised of three interviews of Asian-American simulated patients, from three major sub-ethnic groups of Asian Americans living in the United States, and ethnically matched psychiatrists in therapy sessions. The objectives of these scenarios are to demonstrate how Asian-American patients present their stigma, and how skilled clinicians manage it. The Indian-American patient scenario begins at 3 minutes 40 seconds into the video. The Vietnamese-American scenario begins at 25 minutes 37 seconds. The Filipino-American scenario begins at 49 minutes 44 seconds. See links to Facilitator's Guide and DVD Order Form below video.
