ICH Community Partnership with Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence Featured Success Story on Tufts Website
By Sarah Trieweiler
With seed funding from the Tufts Community Research Center, ICH researcher Jocelyn Chu, ScD, MPH has been able to continue her partnership with the Asian Task Force Against Domestic Violence (ATASK) – an agency serving domestic violence survivors and their families in the New England region Asian community, and a colleague at the Tufts Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). Their collaboration, which grew out of the training program “Building Your Capacity: Advancing Research Through Community Engagement” was recently featured as a model “Success Story” on the CTSI website. Keeping with ICH’s emphasis on community-based participatory research (CBPR) that promotes equitable participation of both academic and community partners throughout all stages of research, their joint project seeks to explore the empowerment process from the perspectives of both domestic violence survivors and ATASK staff. It is hoped that the findings will inform both service delivery at ATASK and the field of domestic violence research by incorporating new knowledge from an often invisible sub-population in the Asian American community.
