01 May Webinar: An Introduction to Participatory Research Methods for Domestic Violence Programs
With Tara Azure (NIWRC) and Kelly Hallman (NIRWC Consultant)
From 3:00 PM until 4:30 PM
National Indigenous Women's Resource Center / www.niwrc.org
This webinar will provide an Indigenous grassroots perspective of participatory research methods that can be used to tell our story about the important work we are doing in our communities, creating safety for victim survivors of domestic violence. The webinar will be an introductory tour that will touch upon: (a) reasons to consider doing research, (b) the types of questions that can (and cannot) be addressed by quantitative and qualitative research, (c) when research should (and should not) be undertaken, and (d) working with outside researchers. It will also pose ethical considerations and introduce the IRB (institutional review board) process. Additionally, an example of a small-scale, participatory research project with a tribal community-based service provider will be illustrated during the webinar.
