Recently Curtin University carried out a national survey of practitioners about partner contact practice in the context of Men’s Behaviour Change Programs. They would now like to capture the experiences of women who have been in receipt of this type of support and need your help with this.
Women needed for survey
Curtin University are seeking your assistance in finding women to complete a short, anonymous, on-line survey (20 to 25 minutes) about the support they received from a Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP). The survey should be completed on a safe computer, in a safe location. Specifically, we would like women whose (ex)partners have attended a MBCP in the last two years to participate (where it is safe to do so).
Access to the survey is through clicking on this link: https://curtin.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1MNOVDMUmRWHQwd
It is anticipated the survey will be open until end of April.
What will the survey ask?
The survey is a mix of multiple choice and open ended questions. Some of the questions will ask about the Men’s Behaviour Change Program and support they were provided with including what they found helpful and unhelpful. They will also be asked to give some information about themselves, their children, as well as the man who participated in the Men’s Behaviour Change Program. There is room for them to describe their experiences in their own words. We will not be asking or recording any identifying information.
What is the purpose of this research?
The purpose of this research is to understand how Men’s Behaviour Change Programs support women and children through their partner contact practice. The project will contribute to improving MBCPs, identifying quality practices and processes for their partner contact service to develop future practice, training, and minimum standards.
Practitioners have also been asked to complete a short, confidential survey about providing this type of support, some of whom will also be interviewed.
Who is involved in the project?
The project is being carried out by Curtin University in conjunction with Industry Partners, Stopping Family Violence and Mr Rodney Vlais (Consultant) and is being funded by the Australian National Organisation for Women’s Safety (ANROWS). The Curtin University Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) has approved this study (approval number HRE2018-0173).
