Researchers looking for men to participate in domestic violence study

International Edu News

Researchers are looking for men who are concerned that they are, or have been, abusive in their relationships with women to take part in a new study that will help improve how we support men in changing their behaviour. The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded REPROVIDE study at the University of Bristol's Centre for Academic Primary Care has developed a 23-week group programme for men that aims to help them understand and change their behaviour. The study aims to assess the effectiveness of the programme for the men taking part and in terms of the safety and wellbeing of their partner or ex-partner.

The study is working in partnership with the charities Barnardo's, Splitz Support Service, NextLink, Phoenix Domestic Abuse Services and Respect to recruit men who live in Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Somerset or Gwent.

Two-thirds of men referred will take part in the group programme, which will provide education and support, and one-third will be assigned to a comparison group, with no additional support. All the men will be asked to complete questionnaires at various points during the study. Partners or ex-partners of the men will also be invited to take part and offered appropriate support. Their experiences will help the research team measure the effectiveness of the programme.
