Relationship Violence in Five Los Angeles Asian American Communities: Intergenerational Risk and Strengthening Factors

General Material
Published Date
October, 2020

This study explores risk and protective factors in five Asian American communities: Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, North Indian Hindu, and Pakistani Muslim. These factors include cultural traditions, norms, attitudes and beliefs, particularly around gender roles, intergenerational family dynamics, intimate relationships, and approaches to child-rearing.

The specific goals of this study were 1) to provide insight into cultural dynamics surrounding intimate relationships and healthy relationships in Los Angeles County Asian American communities, and 2) to develop recommendations for how to approach the multi-layered issue of domestic violence within Asian American communities, recognizing that this requires parallel approaches at different levels across different stakeholder groups to craft a complex solution for a complicated problem.
