Dear Parents, 

You are invited to a special, free parent education event co-organized by the Bay Echo Association and the Berkeley Chinese Business Association.
Please find the relevant information here:

EVENT TITLE:  Your Successful Launch from a US College: Tips for Life and Career Coaching   

WHEN:  Saturday, February 7, 2015  from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm with 30 minutes of networking to follow

WHERE:  RSVP here and we will send you a confirmation email for the location


Join Bay Echo Association and the Berkeley Chinese Business Association in a dialogue about how young adults can prepare for a successful launch from college to life and a career. The presenters are accomplished alumni with advanced degrees from top universities, and with diversified professional background and personal interests.

The ideas shared from the panelists will reference recent trends in the news about the 13% of 18-28 year olds in the US who have “failed to launch” as well as newly published work that believes that students attending elite universities sometimes fall prey to experiences stunt their growth as independent thinkers and doers.

Furthermore, if you are a recent immigrant to US – either you had attended the college or graduate school in the US or not – you will find this event meaningful and inspiring on how to nurture your child as the second generation immigrant to survive and thrive better in the US.  Among the panelists, some were born and raised outside US and some were also second generation immigrants. Chinese interpretation will be available onsite.

January 05, 2012 11:25 AM

每年進入11月份,我們診所就變得異常繁忙,求診的家庭突然增加,一時應接不暇。主要是因為學生們第一張成績單(first marking period report card)公布,成績下降的學生家長焦急萬分,紛紛前來求助(或是應學校要求來做診斷),希望通過心理治療幫助孩子改善學習成績。9月份剛開學,學生們面 臨升初中或高中的適應期,成績小幅下降尚屬正常。但為什麼有些同學持續性地表現出成績下降,自尊心受挫,甚至出現憂鬱症、焦慮症,甚至更嚴重的精神疾病 呢?

Thanksgiving is not just a time to sit down as a family and eat turkey, but is a time to think about what you are grateful of. As for me, I believe that is the point of Thanksgiving. However, my family and I don’t exactly sit down and eat the classic Thanksgiving meal with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, etc. We simply spend the day thinking and sharing about what we are grateful for and thanking one another for what we have.
