The Troubling Cycle

Presented in Vietnamese with English subtitles, The Troubling Cycle, addresses domestic violence from the unique perspectives of Vietnamese immigrants in the United States.

The Troubling Cycle provides a culturally sensitive focus on domestic violence in the Vietnamese community by educating viewers on its destructive effects on women and children, and the need for shelters and protection. It delivers a strong message to abusers that violence violates community values. The video stresses that violence is a choice, and not something that one must tolerate in a relationship. The fact that domestic violence is illegal in the United States and may require mandatory arrest in many states is emphasized as well. The video also addresses issues about domestic violence that are important to immigrant women, such as economic abuse and rights of immigrants to seek help regardless of citizenship status.

Produced in cooperation with Vietnamese community members, the program is sensitive to traditional cultural beliefs and special survival issues unique to refugee women.
