Dr. Catherine Burnette's research focuses on understanding violence against Native American communities - especially women and children - and its prevention from an Indigenous perspective. Her work identifies culturally specific risk and protective factors from an ecosystemic framework of Historical Oppression, Resilience, and Transcendence, illuminating how structural causes are related to violence and associated health disparities. Dr. Burnette uses these factors to inform and adapt a culturally relevant, strengths-based approach to evidence-based prevention options for Indigenous communities.

NIH / NICHD Impact of Culturally Specific Danger Assessment on Safety, Mental Health, and Empowerment Grant Amount:$608,336
The goal of the proposed study is to develop and validate clinically useful, culturally specific versions of the Danger Assessment (DA) to assess risk for severe intimate partner violence among immigrant, refugee and indigenous women. Further, the study will evaluate the impact of administering the culturally specific DA with safety planning/referral tailored to the level of danger, women's preferences and culture in promoting women's empowerment, safety, and mental health.
