Research Participants Needed!



Have you ever been subjected to violence by an intimate partner? Did a law enforcement officer respond to an incident of abuse?

Are you 18 years of age or older?

 We are looking for volunteers to take part in a study of intimate partner violence survivors’ perceptions of law enforcement responses.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to complete an anonymous open- ended survey on your experience. Your participation is entirely voluntary and would take approximately 20-minutes of your time.

Please note that some people may experience psychological or emotional stress due to the sensitive nature of this topic. Contact information for Athabasca University Wellness Resources will be provided.

In appreciation for your time, you will receive a $10 eGift Card to your choice of Tim Hortons or Starbucks.
