The Evidence Hour: Cultural Responsivity in Domestic Violence Intervention Approaches for Immigrants in the U.S.

Oct Evidence Hour blog image

Center for Victim Research’s webinar series, The Evidence Hour, showcases a recent systematic review* or meta-analysis about victimization, trauma, or victim services. Each webinar features an author of the research and a practitioner discussant who will review the findings and reflect on what they mean for victim service providers and researchers.

On October 27, Abha Rai, Ph.D., MSW and Kristen Ravi Ph.D shared findings from a forthcoming scoping review collected articles about domestic violence services designed or adapted for South Asians, East Asians, and Latinx individuals and “immigrant groups who were not disaggregated to depict specific communities.” Their review covers fifteen studies. Radhika Sharma, MPH, discussed her work with Apna Ghar, Inc. (Our Home) and implications of the scoping review for adapting services. The recording is available on the CVR YouTube channel:

*What are Systematic Reviews?

  1. A systematic review is the process of bringing together all available studies about a well-defined question, analyzing the quality of their study methods, and summarizing their findings.
  2. Systematic reviews often use a statistical practice called meta-analysis. This means combining data from multiple studies, to find patterns and calculate the average effect of the intervention.
  3. Because systematic reviews pool results from many experiments and rate the methods of each study, these reviews increase our confidence in the quality and consistency of the evidence and what it means for the field.

Basically, systematic reviews take a large amount of information about a complex issue from multiple sources and make that information more manageable and usable. These reviews can also help make sense of conflicting findings from different studies.
