What does domestic violence in Asian homes look like? What types of sexual assault are Asian women and girls vulnerable to? How do culture and family influence help-seeking?

AshaKiran’s annual Cultural Competency in Crisis Intervention (CCCI) Workshop will address the contexts and dynamics of domestic violence, sexual assault & family violence, the community norms that influence attitudes towards abuse and build on this understanding to identify culturally competent interventions that mitigate barriers and address the needs of Asian survivors. Chic Dabby is the Executive Director of the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (API-GBV) and is the keynote speaker for this year. Training materials, lunch and free parking at the CTC are included in the registration fees. CEUs available for Nurses, Social Workers and Counselors.
