Call for research participants: Social reactions to intimate partner violence against women, Southern OntarioThursday, February 26 2015
Intimate partner violence and abuse affects the lives of many women in Canada and throughout the world. It affects our sisters, friends, mothers, co-workers, and sometimes us.
My name is Courtney Williston, and I am a PhD Candidate in Psychology at the University of Windsor. My dissertation research is exploring perspectives on helpful and unhelpful social support for women who have experienced abuse in intimate relationships. This research has received clearance from the University of Windsor Research Ethics Board # 31926, and is supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. This research is designed to help us understand more about how to best provide help and support for women who experience abuse.
For this research, I am looking to hear from:
- Women who have experienced any form(s) of abuse in an intimate (e.g. dating, cohabiting, married) relationship with a male partner and
- Men and women who have not personally experienced abuse in an intimate relationship
To share their perspectives on the kinds of support that is helpful and unhelpful for women who experience intimate partner violence or abuse.
