Canadian researchers, community collaborators launch study to learn
from survivors and those left behind to enhance domestic homicide prevention
Participants for the study must identify as a survivor of severe domestic violence or a family member, friend, or community professional who lost someone to domestic homicide from one of the four vulnerable groups between 2006 and 2016. The domestic violence or domestic homicide case must be closed, meaning that there are no pending court or coroner investigations. Participants must be safe, at least 18 years of age, and willing to have their interview audio-recorded. People can share their story with the CDHPIVP research team by phone, video conference, or in-person. If needed, translation services are available, and travel and/or childcare costs will be covered. Participants will receive a $50 honorarium for sharing their story. View more information
