What is included with this book?


Domestic violence in Asian American communities remains a rarely discussed, yet pervasive problem. With eight chapters, each dedicated to a different Asian American community, the essays in this volume follow the same general format. Contributors present an overview of the culture, including topics such as migration history, demographics, religious heritage, and views on gender and mental health; they discuss existing research on the prevalence of domestic violence; they present information on typical patterns of help-seeking behavior and coping styles; and, finally, they discuss treatment and policy implications. This unique project will provide an indispensable tool for scholars and researchers in social work and family studies who want to better understand the complexities of serving this growing andv diverse population.
