Professionals' views on sport and violence against women

July 10, 2013 at 9:21 AM

Christine Cowan-James seeks family violence professionals to interview for her Master of Health Science (Psychology) dissertation.  Christine writes:

"Rhoda Scherman is my supervisor at AUT for a qualitative study I'm doing in part requirement for my MHSci (psychology) degree. I'm also one of the researchers for a study Rhoda is conducting on Violence Against Women and Major Sporting events, which is collating data to ascertain whether a relationship exists between violence reported to agencies and the Rugby World Cup (you may remember a talk about this was held at AUT in April).

My study is interested in the views of professionals who work in the field around sporting events and violence against women, and aims to provide more depth to the original quantitative study."

"If anyone is interested they may contact me directly either by email or txt and I'll phone back to arrange an interview time. I'm happy to travel to anyone's place of work or we have rooms available at the AUT North Shore campus. Interviews will take no more than an hour. I am hoping to interview Tuesday Thursday and Friday next week (week ended 19 July), or Friday's thereafter, and looking for 2-3 more candidates."

Information about the study and Christine's contact details is available on the Participant Information Sheet.
