Men as Victims of Intimate Partner Violence - NZ Participants Needed for Study

Hi, My name is Alison Burke and I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Auckland. I am currently undertaking research on the lived experiences and its effects for male victims of intimate partner violence (IPV).
 
Recent research overseas has highlighted that men in heterosexual relationships can be victims of IPV. There is a need for more study in this field particularly in relation to men’s experiences in these abusive relational dynamics.
 
For the purposes of my research IPV may include physical violence (slapping, pushing, shoving, biting, choking, shaking, hitting with objects/weapons); sexual abuse; psychological/emotional abuse (e.g. coercion and threats, intimidation; deprivation of sleep; isolation from family/friends; humiliation; verbal abuse; controlling behaviours; withholding information or controlling and denying access to finances.
 
As part of my research I would like to interview men who are over the age of 18 and who have experienced IPV in their personal lives in a heterosexual relationship.

Do you have a male client or former client who is or has been a victim of intimate partner violence/abuse?
 
Is he aged over 18?
 
Would he be willing to be interviewed for 1-2 hours about his experiences?


Interviews can take place at a time and location convenient to your client. He will be asked to choose a pseudonym and his confidentiality will be respected through the entire project.
 
If you do have a client or former client who fits the criteria please pass this advertisement on to him. If he is interested in talking with me or wants more information on my study, he can contact me at avin023@aucklanduni.ac.nz or 027-545-4049 and I can discuss the study with him further.
 
Any assistance in passing this advertisement on to possible prospective participants would be greatly appreciated.

APPROVED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF AUCKLAND HUMAN PARTICIPANTS ETHICS COMMITTEE ON 22/12/2014 FOR 3 YEARS, REFERENCE NUMBER 013237
