Domestic Violence and Cultural Competency "Toolbox"
Geared toward adults and professionals, our Toolbox curriculum offers best practices on how to understand and respond to domestic violence within Asian/immigrant populations and other marginalized communities. Our Toolbox trainings include Domestic Violence 101, Domestic Violence in Asian Communities, and Cultural Competency.
Tailored to audiences with different levels of understanding of domestic violence and immigrant communities, Toolbox workshops offer an understanding of the nuances and factors unique to domestic violence in immigrant populations and communities of color. The curriculum was developed through interviews and surveys with clients and direct services staff of ATASK, comprehensive feedback from community leaders in the field, and extensive research.
ATASK has provided trainings to law enforcement agencies, health care providers, dental students, hospitals, school personnel, social service agencies, immigrant-serving agencies and domestic/sexual violence organizations.
To request a workshop for professionals working with victims of domestic violence, immigrant-serving organizations, community-based organizations, or adult community members, please contact:Dipa Bhattacharyya
