Hello, Namaste, and Salaams Friends,
We want to invite you to share your ideas about what information is important to you as South Asian parents in the U.S. Below is information about a survey for parents and the link to the site to take the survey. If you’ve already taken the survey, please forward this to friends, family, listserves and on your Facebook page so others will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and engage in follow-up for this project. Please note – the deadline to complete the survey is approaching. Please take the time to complete this short survey before January 15th.
We want to hear what is on your mind!
As part of a project funded by the Asian American Psychological Association-American Psychological Foundation Okura Mental Health Grant, we are collaborating with the organization Counselors Helping (South) Asians/Indians (CHAI) to address the needs of South Asian parents in the United States. We plan to develop and distribute informational brochures and create virtual and in-person seminars on parenting, specifically highlighting issues unique to South Asian culture.
In order for us to do this, we first have to know the issues and concerns on the minds of South Asian parents. Please click the link below to take a brief (less than 10 mins) survey on South Asian parenting. Parents of children of all ages (infancy to young adulthood) can complete the survey.
Please share this survey with other South Asian parents. Your answers will help us determine the parenting topics that South Asian parents want to hear more about.
Please note – the deadline to complete the survey is approaching. Please take the time to complete this short survey before January 15th.
Stay tuned for more information on parenting groups and online seminars for 2013! Please email us if you have any questions.
-Neha Navsaria, PhD & Razia Kosi, LCSW-C (Executive Director of CHAI, Inc.)
