AshaKiran's annual Cultural Competency in Crisis Intervention (CCCI) Workshop focuses on a different community each year and this year will be focusing on the Asian-Pacific Islanders community...
2017 AK CCCI:
Building Culturally Competent Services in Response to Domestic, Sexual & Family Violence in Asian Communities...
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) 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. CEU or NBCC Credits will be available for $20 for Nurses, Social Workers & Counselors and general admission is $15. UAH students will have the option to attend the workshop only at no cost. 2017 participating sponsors include Huntsville Hospital, Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ACADV), the University of Alabama in Huntsville's Office of Diversity & Multicultural Affairs, Office of Women's & Gender Studies and the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence (API-GBV).
