Considering the Interplay of Cultural Context and Service Provision in Intimate Partner Violence:The Case of Haitian Immigrant Women

This qualitative study explored how the cultural context of intimate partner violence affected accessibility to mainstream services for one immigrant group: Haitian women. Analysis of the data revealed two major themes. First, the nature and context of intimate partner violence in the Haitian immigrant community contribute to Haitian women’s reluctance to seek services as well as their overall vulnerability to intimate partner violence. Second, mainstream services are largely inaccessible to Haitian women. The authors conclude with suggestions for overcoming cultural barriers through education, increasing cultural competency of mainstream services, and creating alternative community-based services. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Violence Against Women SAGE
