The impact of domestic violence exposure on South Asian children in the United States: perspectives of domestic violence agency staff.
The goal of this study was to examine the needs of South Asian children subjected to domestic violence, from the perspective of staff in domestic violence agencies across the U.S. in order to determine if the children required culture-specific resources. Thirty interviews were conducted; participants described factors important to understanding the impact of domestic violence on South Asian children and discussed the development of culturally tailored resources. The findings suggests that framing South Asian children's experiences within the context of interweaving South Asian and American cultural values, with attention focused on how potential culture clashes may impact the way children that process trauma, is important. The authors recommend that further work triangulate these themes between children, parents, and extended family and in collaboration with domestic violence agencies.
