WHEN: June 26 @8:15AM - 3:30PM 
WHERE: UAH Campus, CTC Hall, 1410 Ben Graves Dr, HSV, AL
What does domestic violence in Asian homes look like? What types of sexual assault are Asian women and girls vulnerable to? How do culture and family influence help-seeking? AshaKiran's annual Cultural Competency in Crisis Intervention (CCCI) will address the contexts and dynamics of domestic violence, sexual assault & family violence, the community norms that influence attitudes towards abuse and build on this understanding to identify culturally competent interventions that mitigate barriers and address the needs of Asian survivors.

Training materials, lunch and free parking at the CTC are included in the registration fees.
