Interpartner Violence Among Latinos: Community Perceptions on Help Seeking and Needed Programs
Applying a community-based participatory research approach and with the aim of developing a culturally competent program to reduce intimate partner violence (IPV) in the Latino population, 3 focus groups were conducted with Latino health promoters and male and female community members. Thematic analysis was used to analyze the qualitative data collected on help-seeking behaviors and needed programs for IPV. Results reflect the need for more prevention and intervention programs that are consistent with Latinos' cultural values such as their strong family and spiritual orientations. Limitations of the study are also addressed.
