Show Notes

This week, Christie and Diana chat with Dr. Jenny Wang about her new book, Permission to Come Home: Reclaiming Mental Health as Asian Americans. Dr. Wang talks about the terrifying yet healing process of writing this book, sharing her own family history, and moving through failure, vulnerability and grief. Together they explore the power of converting silence into vulnerability, healing intergenerational pain, and finding the courage to ask ourselves uncomfortable questions.

Dr. Jenny Wang is a Taiwanese American clinical psychologist, national speaker and author of Permission to Come Home: Reclaiming Mental Health as Asian Americans which is available now! Connect with Dr. Wang at www.jennywangphd.com or via Instagram @asiansformentalhealth
