Intimate Partner Violence Among Diverse and At-Risk Populations
For your Weekly Discussion this week, please follow this link to a short news report (article & film) on some of the challenges that law enforcement faces when trying to protect undocumented women.
Here is an additional resource from NOW: Learn-More-IPV-and-Immigrant-Womenpdf.pdf
Here are some prompts to help you with your discussion:
- What are some culturally competency issues that need to be addressed with this issue?
- As you consider the challenges that undocumented women have in reporting domestic violence & abuse, how can you as a practitioner address culturally competent issues related to abuse in the Latinex population?
- Given that this is an issue that affects a huge segment of the population in our community, what are some things that we can do as social workers to bring awareness?
Required APA Discussion Format (to be done for every discussion board unless stated otherwise):
1. You must include in-text APA citations IN your discussion (these are called in-text citations).
2. At the bottom of your discussion, you will space down twice and type REFERENCES. Underneath the phrase REFERENCES, you will list no less than two references (one should be your textbook and the other should be a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article) that match the in-text citations IN your initial discussion post. Make sure references and citations you are using in this discussion are honest, accurate descriptions of information you are actually using for source information.
