Survery for Male Victims of Domestic Violence

How're you doing? I am excited to tell you that I am conducting an Online Survey on "Help-Seeking Behaviors of Adult Men in Partner Abuse" for my Dissertation Research (see email with the link below). Since this population is hard to reach, I would like to request your assistance to distribute it widely to those who may be interested in this study. Thanks!

This is a nationwide survey using snowball sampling. Please help forward this email to service providers (working in the field of domestic violence or family relations) , your friends, and male victims/survivors to reach the participants. Target Participants are male victims/survivors of partner abuse, aged 18 or above and living in the U.S.

Greatly appreciate for your help and THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!

Have a nice weekend!

Dear Participant,

The Research Team at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work is conducting a survey on “Help-Seeking Behaviors of Adult Men in Partner Abuse”. You are being invited to be one of approximately 250 participants to participate in this survey. We would like to invite you (as participant) to complete the anonymous questionnaire via this link:

A paper survey will also be available if you have no access to a computer by indicating “paper survey” with a returned address by mail or email to Venus Tsui (see address below).

If you are a service provider working with a focus on intimate partner abuse or family relations, you are welcome to invite men who were or have been abused by their partner to participate in the survey by forwarding this email or cover letter to them. This study is IMPORTANT! We would appreciate it very much if you would post the FLYER [please click] in your office and organization’s waiting area? In addition, an electronic copy of the Survey is available for your distribution upon request (see contact information below). Finally, a Resource Guide for Men in Partner Abuse is provided for your reference (please click and feel free to print out and use).

Please note that a cover letter is included in the survey to explain the purpose and procedures of this study. Your participation and/or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your participation!
