Exploring Child Abuse among Vietnamese Refugees.
Segal, Uma A.
Journal of Multicultural Social Work, v8 n3-4 p159-91 2000
A study interviewed 28 Vietnamese refugee families in St. Louis (Missouri) to determine difficulties in adjusting to the United States and to assess the prevalence of child abuse among this population. Findings were inconsistent and suggested that common methods of identifying child abuse may not be valid among populations reluctant to admit to using corporal punishment. (Contains 69 references.)
