What is the study?
“The Prevalence of Domestic Violence in the lives of Heterosexual Partners of Sex Addicts” study is a 10-15 minute, online questionnaire which will form the basis of a study on a wide range of domestic violence experiences that partners of sex addicts (PSAs) may have had with their sex addict (SA) partner. Participation is entirely voluntary, anonymous, and can be stopped at any time.
Why do we need it?
The information gained from this research will be used to help professionals provide better care for PSAs, sex addicts and those seeking help for domestic violence-related issues.
Who can participate?
Participants will be heterosexual women aged 18+ who identify themselves as a PSA and who have sought support for this issue. Moreover, they must have lived with a male SA partner for at least 12 months, and if the relationship has ended, this must have happened within the last 24 months.
If you are a PSA who meets the above criteria, whether or not you consider yourself to have experienced domestic violence in your relationship, you are invited to participate in this short survey.
