3 Asian-Canadian Chidren and Famiies East/ Southeast Asian origins Chinese Fiipino Indo-Chinese origins Indonesian Japanese Korean Maay Mongoian Taiwanese Tibetan Asian, n.i.e. East/Southeast Asian, n.i.e. Indo-Chinese origins Burmese Cambodian Laotian Thai Vietnamese n.i.e. abbreviation for not incuded esewhere. Note: Adapted from Ethnic origin, by Statistics Canada, 1999, 1996 Census dictionary Fina editionreference cat. no UIE, Ottawa, ON: Statistics Canada, Last updated March 21,

4 A Growing Popuation Asians are the argest and fastest growing ethnic minorities in Canada and the US (Statistics Canada, 2010; US Census Bureau, 2010) In Canada, the top source country is the Phiippines (13.1%) foowed by China (10.4%) (Nationa Househod Survey, 2011) Diversity in backgrounds and needs Note: The year 2006 was the ast Canadian Census that incuded data regarding immigration and ethno-cutura diversity. The Statistics Canada ong-form questionnaire was repaced in 2011 by the Nationa Househod Survey to coect data regarding immigration and ethno-cutura diversity. 4

5 Gaps in Chid Wefare Research and Knowedge Very itte attention has been given to Asian chidren and famiies invoved in the chid wefare system and socia services (Beh, Crouch, May, Vaente, & Conyngham, 2001; Fong & Mokuau, 1994) Ignores the rea and reevant issues in the Asian communities (Kim & Keefe, 2010; Leong & Lau, 2001) Understanding Asian chidren and famiies is important in preventing harm and supporting we-being 5

6 Theoretica Frameworks Decision-making Ecoogy (Baumann, Dageish, Fuke, & Kern, 2011; Baumann, Kern, & Fuke, 1997 ) Genera Assessment and Decision-making Mode (Degeish, 2003, 2006 ) Cuture and Chid Matreatment Decision-Making Mode (Terao, Borrego, & Urquiza, 2001 ) Theoretica Framework of Chid Matreatment Among Asian Americans (Zhai & Gao, 2009 ) 6

10 FOCUS GROUP THEME: Cose-knit Famiy Dynamics Inhibit Chid Wefare Invovement [Asian] famiy and chidren are not encouraged to speak about private famiy matters so then the ony time we do get invoved is when an incident has aready happened. So we are not getting in at the eary hep stages. 10

13 FOCUS GROUP THEME: Chid Wefare Service Shoud be Based on the Cient s Need We re not transferring them to ongoing service because we don t have a fu depth and breadth of understanding of the famiy. To me, that s about anguage barriers and cutura barriers. 13

14 Asian Chidren and Famiies Received Ongoing CPS for Longer OCANDS (N=1,988) Asian Median Days = 339 White Median Days =

16 Research Summary Asian famiies are disproportionatey underrepresented in the chid wefare system Disparities in chid wefare invovement between Asian and White chidren and famiies aong the continuum of chid wefare services and decisions Chid wefare workers and community service professionas provided cutura and structura context for chid wefare services and decisions 16

17 Limitations Examined ony chid matreatment investigations Asian category Immigration status not avaiabe Key factors not avaiabe Community characteristics Organizationa factors Poverty Missing are the voices and perspectives of caregivers, chidren, other professionas 17

18 Impications and Recommendations Research 1. More research on Asian popuation in chid wefare 2. Avaiabe data regarding ethnicity, race, and immigration 3. Ethno-racia categories need to be defined 4. Avaiabe discrete categories of Asian groups 5. Consider individua, organizationa, and externa factors 6. Use advanced statistica strategies 7. Quaitative or mixed methods, and with different perspectives 18

19 Impications and Recommendations Theory 1. PDI and DDI shoud be presented together 2. MDI shoud be used for popuations with predominant specific matreatment concern 3. Chid Matreatment Decision-making Mode shoud aso consider matreatment type and severity 4. The Decision-making Ecoogy can be strengthened by considering cient factors 5. Longitudina perspectives shoud be considered in theory deveopment 19

20 Impications and Recommendations Practice 1. Evidence-informed practices are needed 2. Attention to menta heath concerns among Asian- Canadian chidren and famiies 3. Community engagement and outreach with Asian communities 4. Cross-cutura training for chid wefare workers to promote cutura sensitivity and awareness in organizations 20
