Preliminary Construction of a Service Provider-Informed Domestic Violence Research Agenda
Murray, Christine E.; Welch, Metoka L.
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v25 n12 p2279-2296 Dec 2010
This article presents the results of a statewide survey of domestic violence (DV) service providers that focused on the needs, background characteristics, and opinions of service providers related to research. The survey included an examination of service providers' motivation for working in the field, research background and training, and perceptions of research as well as the topics they believe are important for researchers to study, the resources they consult to learn about DV, and their suggestions to help researchers learn more about the nature of their work. The results are integrated into a preliminary agenda for future DV research that accounts for the needs and insight of service providers. (Contains 2 tables.)
