Overcoming abusive relationships: Seeking participants for new research study
Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone you know who may be interested in participating in this study.
We are conducting a new research study to learn about the process of overcoming abusive relationships, including physical, sexual, and/or emotional and psychological abuse. This research is the next step in our research that is the foundation of our See the Triumph campaign (www.seethetriumph.org or https://www.facebook.com/seethetriumph). The goals of See the Triumph are: (1) To share empowering messages that people can overcome their abuse and create positive, nonviolent lives; (2) To describe strategies that have worked for other survivors to help them overcome their abuse and the stigma related to it; and (3) To promote a new view of battering survivors that shows them as triumphant, courageous, and resourceful.
We are recruiting research participants who were in a former abusive relationship (e.g., with a spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, or life partner), but who have been out of any abusive relationship for at least two years.
All participants must be at least 21 years of age and be able to complete an electronic survey in the English language. All surveys will be taken on-line and will last for approximately 20 minutes. To thank participants for their time, participants who complete the survey will be eligible to enter into a drawing for one of two $50 store gift cards.
