Towards healthier, violence-free South Asian families
Little research exists on what intervention and prevention strategies hold promise in reducing overall instances of domestic violence in our communities. South Asian community leaders recognized this lack of research literature, and spurred by recent murders in our communities (I use the term “communities” to reflect the diversity within our South Asian population), approached representatives from the Centre for the Prevention and Reduction of Violence, based at the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster. As a result of this consultation, a research project was initiated to study this issue and come up with some tangible intervention and prevention strategies.
