Cultural Responsivity in Domestic Violence Intervention Approaches for Immigrants in the U.S.

Event Date
Wednesday, October 27, 2021, 02:00PM

Domestic violence (DV) is a pervasive problem with adverse health effects. While all communities can experience DV, immigrants are at a higher risk of DV victimization due to their unique positionality in the United States. Overall, there have been an increasing number of immigrants in the U.S. over the past few years. Even though empirical research has examined mainstream DV interventions and the extent to which they deter victimization, there is limited knowledge about culturally responsive interventions for immigrants. Therefore, it is imperative to highlight the intersectional needs of immigrant communities to become adept in responding to their needs. In this presentation, presenters will highlight and share the findings of a scoping review about culturally responsive interventions for immigrants in the U.S. Further, the presentation will reflect on presenters' experiences as practitioners and researchers who have been engaged in developing and implementing culturally responsive interventions for immigrants.
