The eSafety Commissioner has engaged Queensland University of Technology to conduct research on technology-facilitated abuse involving women with intellectual or cognitive disability in the context of domestic and family violence.
This research is being supported by QUT partners: the Women’s, Services Network, WWILD – Sexual Violence Prevention Association Inc. and South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence.
The study is open to:
- domestic violence front-line workers
- specialist and advocacy domestic and family violence professionals
- disability service workers.
The researches would like to hear about the ways that technology is being misused in the abuse of women with intellectual or cognitive disability.
Participants will attend in a one hour focus group or interview, online or via phone.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions, please contact Dr Bridget Harris at the QUT research team via firstname.lastname@example.org or (07) 3138 7119.
