Hampton, R., Carrillo, R.A., & Kim, J. (1998). Violence in Communities of Color. In R. Carrillo & J. Tello (Eds.), Family Violence and Men of Color: Healing the Wounded Male Spirit (pp. 1-30). New York, NY: Springer Publishing Company, Inc.

The article contains statistical and comparative information on couple violence and child abuse among different ethnic and racial groups. The authors conclude that when studying communities of color, research methodologies must reflect the diversity of worldviews and reanalyze data that most notably account for differences from a non-pathological perspective. More sophisticated analyses are needed to explore the complicated variables of race/ethnicity, social class, culture, social networks, acculturation and community-wide variables such as resource deprivation, residential turnover, family disruption, and other socioeconomic factors and their relationship to family violence. Future research should seek to recognize cultural differences in family functioning without viewing them as deviant or pathological, and should recognize the complex nature of differences between and within ethnic groups. Future research should also seek to address the large gaps in knowledge concerning violence among families of color, which have been understudied in years past.

The author provides an overview of CORIAC (the Men’s Collective for Egalitarian Relationships), a non-profit civic organization in Mexico City that works with men who recognize themselves as violent. The program includes three levels of re-education or individual work, wherein each level has sixteen sessions. A brief explanation of the CORIAC model is provided as well as an assessment of the results.
