OBJECTIVES: This presentation will discuss cultural antecedents to inhibitions of libidinal
drive among first generation Chinese American adults. The aspects of the Chinese Cultural
Revolution that differ from the Holocaust in regard to collective trauma will be described. Dr.

Kim will identify the ways transgenerational trauma can influence superego functioning, ego
functioning deficits, and defenses in survivors of the Cultural Revolution and their children.
