Dr Helen McLaren is leading an investigation into how the quality of life of women who have experienced domestic violence can be improved.
The study is seeking women affected by domestic and family violence who are willing to share their perspective on what a ‘better life’ looks like.
Specifically the study is focusing on the goals, expectations, standards and concerns of women who have experienced domestic and family violence.
Interviews will be conducted with participants until the end of September 2017.
Findings will be used to inform perpetrator intervention programs and help determine their relevance, bias and effectiveness.
Part of a larger project called ‘Defining quality of life indicators for measuring perpetrator intervention effectiveness’, the study is funded by Australia’s National Research Organisation on Women’s Safety (ANROWS) and supported by the Discipline of Social Work at Flinders University.
More information about the project is available at https://www.dvpresearch.com/.
Those who wish to be interviewed for the study are invited to complete a Flinders consent form.
