I conduct research
We know a lot about the impacts of family violence on brain development, lifelong health, academic success, social opportunities and economic status. We need evidence for approaches that prevent violence, create meaningful and positive impacts on survivors and families, and disrupt intergenerational transmission of trauma and oppression.
we partner with survivors to develop our research questions and design our evaluations?
Strategies to Center Survivors in Research and Evaluation
Conduct Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) on Domestic Violence
Embrace CBPR in conducting research on domestic violence. By sharing power in research design and co-creating knowledge with survivors, researchers can enhance the utility of their research for improving responses to families.
Research partnerships with survivors and communities can change the trajectory of evidence building and empirical knowledge toward authentic, actionable, and intersectional solutions to family violence.
What can you do?
Translate existing data/findings to tell a story for local leaders, policymakers and funders about how to create conditions and experiences that help survivors of domestic violence and child maltreatment to grow and heal and thrive.
