Terence Ching Intersecting minority identities may confer unique risks for stress and trauma. In this presentation, Terence Ching, MS, will review extant research on the processes and outcomes of racial and sexual/gender identity-related (i.e., “intersectional”) stress and trauma among the understudied population of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Asian Americans. Specifically, he will detail how structural oppression, cultural norms and stigma, interpersonal discrimination and violence, internalized minority stress cognitions, and maladaptive coping and poor social support interact in contributing to negative mental and sexual health outcomes in LGBTQ Asian Americans. At the same time, he will highlight the resilience of LGBTQ Asian Americans in overcoming oppression, and emphasize the multifaceted strengths inherent within the LGBTQ Asian American identity.

Terence Ching, M.S., is a psychology intern in the final stage of his doctoral training in clinical psychology at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Terence received his Master’s degree in clinical psychology and completed his doctoral academic training at the University of Connecticut. Prior to moving to the United States, Terence received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in psychology at the National University of Singapore.
