I just received this request for our assistance from Researchers at Clark University and Bridgewater State College. If you are a victim of abuse this university study wants your input…
To Whom It May Concern:
We are looking for male victims of heterosexual partner violence who sustained some kind of aggression within the previous year to fill out a confidential, anonymous, online survey about their experiences with partner violence, their health, and their experiences with seeking help for their partner violence victimization
Here is a copy of our IRB-approved advertisement for this study:
Researchers at Clark University and Bridgewater State College are conducting a study on men who experience aggression from their girlfriends, wives, or female partners. If you are a man between the ages of 18-59 and have experienced aggression from your partner within the past 12 months, you may be eligible to participate in this study. We invite you to follow this link to the study webpage where you can complete an Internet survey about your experiences. Link: www.clarku.edu/faculty/dhines
Our aim is to have about 500 male victims complete this survey so that we can provide sound, empirical information about male victims and their experiences, in the hopes of making domestic violence services more widely available to them.
I appreciate your consideration.
One comment on “Are You A Male Victim Of Partner Violence?”
Not Contented To Their Partners
Many people think that we have to get married since we’ve been taught that marriage is an achievement. So a lot of people are going into marriages half-heartedly, which makes it really hard to stick with their lifelong promise. One of the factors that driven the couple to divorce is that some married people are comparing their lives to those happy families in the movies and magazines portray. All of this pressure we place on ourselves can leave us depleted and unable to meet our expectations. Divorcing can be somewhat devastating and bring up a wide range of emotions from anger to self-pity and loneliness. Nowadays there are many single parents, some of them where left by their partners after they where get pregnant and some of them are divorce and living alone with their kids. Single parents usually worked hard to double their income to support their own lives and their children. Sadly, the divorce rate is over fifty percent, and a huge reason of divorce happens to be disagreement over money. Many newlyweds rush to the altar, thinking that marriage is a piece of cake with no sour after taste. Although marriage has its rewards, it will probably be the hardest thing you’ll ever do, especially when it comes to finances. I have also experienced marriage money issues. My husband and I think conversely when it comes to money. As a child, I remembered saving every penny I found and overtime, grew into a large sum – enough to purchase my first car during my high school days. My husband, on the other hand, was never taught the money management skills necessary to live a practical adult life. If he wants something, he goes out and buys it. However, we’ve made it work by discussing our problems. We frequently disagree, but every married person can agree that marriage is all about compromise. And we work hard to compromise when it comes to our budget. My marriage advice to any newlywed would be to speak openly with your spouse about everything, especially when it comes to money. Communication is the biggest key to a happy marriage. Seek help from marriage counselors if you need help with your communication skills. And if for any reason you need help covering any unexpected expense, don’t resort to an overdrawn bank account or addition fees. Payday installment loans have helped my marriage on different occasions, and more people should use these types of loans when they’re in a temporary financial jam.
