A research team across Bournemouth University (Dept of Social Sciences (Criminology), Dept of Social Work, Dept of Psychology) are conducting research on interventions for domestic violence and abuse perpetrators. As part of the data collection we are looking for survivors of domestic abuse to complete a short anonymous survey which focuses in particular on their perspective of perpetrator interventions, including both with and without criminal justice system involvement. This study will have an impact on what we know about survivors perspectives of perpetrator work, which is a previously under-researched area.
The survey covers topics such as;
Were there any formal or informal consequences for the perpetrator of abuse?
What would survivors would have wanted in terms of perpetrator intervention?
What would have been the preferred pathway to intervention/support for survivors and how could it be improved?

This is an international study funded by the EU Horizons fund from 2020-2022 and the data collection is also happening in tandem across partners in Greece, Italy, Romania, and Cyprus. This study has gained ethical clearance from Bournemouth University.
