Cultural Evaluation of Services for Latina Survivors and Latino Batterers

Funder: National Institute of Mental Health
PI: Parra-Cardona, J.R.
Dates: 2010-2012
Dr. Parra-Cardona conducts research focused on evaluating the cultural relevance of interventions for Latina survivors and Latino men who batter. This work has led to relevant outcomes such as a recent publication in the journal Violence Against Women (2013, Vol. 19, pp. 107-132), in which Latino men who batterers provided detailed accounts of the importance to embrace cultural sensitivity as well as firm promotion of accountability when working with Latino abusers. Specifically, this publication focused on the cultural evaluation of the Duluth curriculum after being implemented with a group of Latino batterers. Since 2009, Dr. Parra-Cardona has been actively promoting the dissemination of best practices for men who abuse in Mexico.
