Proposed Project: The Role of Power and Control in Intimate Partner Violence—New—The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), plans to draw a sample of individuals convicted of battering in the Dallas County Domestic Violence Court, and a sample of men living in Dallas County. The study participants, which will include two samples of men, will be asked to complete a survey that will utilize information collection instruments and methods developed and tested by experts in the fields of psychology and sociology. The study will include psychological assessments of attachment, depression, anger, and sociological assessments of peer support for violence, attitudes toward violence, and attitudes toward sex roles.
The data will be collected to further understand the psychological and sociological correlates of battering (e.g., male battering of female partners), which will, in turn, assist in developing models for intervention programs.
The only cost to the respondents is the time involved to complete the survey.
|Respondents||Number of respondents||Number of responses/ respondent||Average Burden/ response (in hours)||Total burden (in hours)|
