New Survey of Men’s Perceptions of Domestic Violence


Are you a man over 18 years? We want to hear from you. Please fill out this questionnaire on how men, in their role as observers, perceive and would respond to situations of domestic violence. This shouldn’t take longer than five minutes to complete and the results will be used to inform an MA thesis study on Bystander Intervention and the role of non-violent men generally, when responding to inter-partner and domestic violence.  Please share with your friends and colleagues.
