Domestic violence disclosure schemes study: Interviews with applicants

March 24, 2023 at 11:07 AM

Notice from Professor Kate Fitz-Gibbon and Professor Sandra Walklate from Monash University

Professor Kate Fitz-Gibbon and Professor Sandra Walklate from Monash University are conducting a study on the benefits, merits and risks of domestic violence disclosure schemes in Australia and New Zealand.

They have now commenced the next stage of data collection in their study and are seeking to interview individuals in Australia and New Zealand who have used a domestic violence disclosure scheme. This includes:

  • Individuals who have requested a disclosure for themselves and/or;
  • Individuals who have requested a disclosure on behalf of someone else (e.g., a family member, neighbour or work colleague)

Participation in the project will involve doing an interview with a member of the research team to discuss experiences with and perceptions of the South Australian, New South Wales or New Zealand domestic violence disclosure schemes.

The interview will take approximately 30 minutes and will take place via zoom or telephone at a time convenient to the participant. If they do not feel comfortable doing an interview, they are also happy to provide the interview questions to them so they can send them a written response.

During the interview, they will ask a range of questions about the individual's experiences with a domestic violence disclosure scheme, including:

  • why they accessed the scheme and how they applied for a disclosure;
  • their decision-making after accessing the scheme; and
  • the impact of the scheme on their safety.

All interview participants will receive a $100 voucher for their time. 

Participation in the study is confidential and all interview data will be deidentified. 

The researchers are keen to access as many individuals as possible to build improved understandings of the impact of domestic violence disclosure schemes.
