dc.description.abstractWith the limited research on cross-cultural issues affecting child maltreatment among ethnic minority groups, including East Asian American populations (Maker et al., 2005), it is essential to examine the literature to understand better the needs of these groups and the factors affecting help-seeking behaviors in cases of child maltreatment. It is also important to explore the role of cultural factors, such as cultural values, and the potential ways these may influence experiences and perceptions of child abuse. This literature review explores cultural factors and their associations with perceptions of child abuse and help-seeking intentions. Hence, it aims to demonstrate culturally adaptive and effective ways to work with East Asian Americans when they seek help in mental health services, whether voluntary or not, in cases of child maltreatment. The goal is to help clinicians effectively assess and intervene in potential child abuse situations and to work with East American families in a culturally sensitive and effective manner. In addition, the findings of this literature review will assist in providing suggestions for future research.en_US
