In this article, we explore the experiences of war and subsequent traumas in the lives of Asian American women from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Cambodian genocide. We present a brief review of the current state of mental health as it relates to the experiences of war trauma, including post-trauma migrations, with the goal of providing a crucial contextual backdrop for our review of the best practices in mental health services to Asian American women. We review some of the best practices and conclude with a narrative reflection based on our own involvement in a small professional women’s group that yielded insights, discoveries, healing, and empowerment from the legacy of war trauma.
