Young Adult Participants Needed for Virtual Interviews
Did you witness intimate partner violence as a child?
The Manitoba Advocate is looking for volunteers to take part in a study about witnessing intimate partner violence in childhood. Virtual interviews will take approximately 1-2 hours.
As a participant, you will be asked about your experience, the services you received, and how they can be improved. This work will help inform recommendations to the government to improve services for children who witness intimate partner violence and their families.
Individuals between 18 and 30 years old who witnessed intimate partner violence as a child or youth (under the age of 18) are welcome to participate. Interview participants will be compensated with $40 gift cards. (more…)
