The child welfare system in the United States is both a foreign system and a foreign concept to immigrant Korean parents. Some traditional Korean child rearing practices are considered abusive in the United States and these child rearing practices form one of the leading risk factors for child abuse and neglect among immigrant Korean parents. In addition, acculturative stress and the intergenerational gap between immigrant Korean parents and their children form barriers to healthy family relationships and increase the risk of child abuse and neglect in immigrant Korean families.
This curriculum was designed and developed to help immigrant Korean parents who are involved in the child welfare system in California: (a) understand the U.S. child welfare system; (b) assess their child rearing practices and learn how these practices are perceived by the U.S. child welfare system; (c) strengthen their family relationships by addressing the challenges of acculturation and the intergenerational gap; and (d) understand the importance of self-care.
