Educational Support Group for Cambodian Women of Domestic Violence: A Grant Proposal
by Tae, Jenny Sok, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 65; 10751670
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop an educational support group, identify potential funding sources, and complete a grant application for funding to serve Cambodian women who experience domestic violence or intimate partner violence at the Cambodian Association of America (CAA). The Southeast Asian community including the Cambodian community has been underrepresented regarding research on the prevalence of domestic violence. Studies have found that cultural beliefs, values, gender roles, poverty, language barriers, education levels, and immigration status may keep this population from seeking services when domestic violence or intimate partner violence occurs. Also, studies have found that educational support groups and advocacy services that are culturally and linguistically responsive have shown to be successful programs for this population. Therefore, this proposed project is needed. Actual submission to obtain funding is not required for this proposed project.
