The study in this report explores risk and protective factors in five Asian American communities: Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, North Indian Hindu, and Pakistani Muslim. These factors include cultural traditions, norms, attitudes and beliefs, particularly around gender roles, intergenerational family dynamics, intimate relationships, and approaches to child-rearing.

Eight organizations, including Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council (A3PCON), Asian Pacific Counseling & Treatment Centers (APCTC), Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF), Korean American Family Services (KFAM), Koreatown Youth & Community Center (KYCC), Pacific Asian Counseling Services (PACS), South Asian Network (SAN), and Special Service for Groups – Research & Evaluation (SSG R&E), partnered together to conduct this collaborative research project.
