About Alianza


As stated during the symposium, conventional risk markers or precursors for domestic violence identified in the general U.S. population may be useful predictors of domestic violence for Latinos communities. In addition, it is important to study culture-specific factors that are associated with this phenomenon. Thus, research is needed to understand both the risks and protective factors that may enhance the effectiveness of prevention, intervention and treatment programs in the general Latino population, as well as in specific subgroups (e.g., Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Central Americans, etc.). This work will support the efforts of researchers and practitioners in constructing culturally relevant and effective solutions to domestic violence in the Latino community.

The Alianza is also interested in developing and maintaining connections and collaborative opportunities with researchers, advocates, and service providers doing similar work in the area of family violence in Latin America. To this effect, various articles regarding domestic violence in Latin America have been included in this annotated bibliography.

We hope this annotated bibliography will prove useful to the field and that it will foster innovative and culturally competent research about domestic violence in the Latino community. We look forward to our role as collaborators with other researchers, advocates, service providers, and policy makers as we generate and disseminate our collective knowledge regarding the manner in which domestic violence affects our Latino families and communities.
