by Vu, Lisa T., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 69; 1523101
Abstract (Summary)

Though the Asian community has been historically underrepresented in studies regarding the prevalence of domestic violence and child abuse, studies have indicated that cultural barriers and problems in existing studies’ methodologies led to this underrepresentation and inevitable myth that family violence does not exist in the Asian community. There are only a handful of domestic violence shelters in the United States targeting the Asian community. The purpose of the proposed program, “Healthy Mom, Healthy Me” or HM2, is to improve the quality of life for victims of family violence and child abuse, aid in the recovery of trauma and to build a healthy mother-child bond through a culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate approach. Through psychotherapy, psychoeducation and modeling of parenting skills, this program will serve as an integral resource to mothers and their children who have been abruptly uprooted from their home and are living in a domestic violence emergency shelter.
