Center on Domestic Violence Fall Community Education Series Workshop
11:00 AM - 01:00 PM Cost/fee: $15-$30
The 23+ million Asians/Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the U.S. represent a diverse array of races, ethnicities, cultures, socio-economic statuses, and other identities. As a result, the experiences and needs of AAPI survivors of gender-based violence are just as varied, and meaningful services that come from a culturally relevant approach are critical in making sure that survivors and their families have access to continued well-being and healing. In this training, you will gain a deeper understanding of the cultural dynamics and barriers experienced by AAPI survivors, and the provision of culturally responsive services. This training is designed for an interdisciplinary audience who already have some knowledge of gender-based violence and will include a combination of presentation, participant discussion and breakout sessions.
