--The study has now ended. --
I am sincerely grateful to all who participated.
Thank you so much for your help (& feedback)!
And thank you to everyone who has participated thus far. My advisor & I took a preliminary look at the data last Thursday, & what we found was sobering. While we weren’t surprised by the rates of DV/CA we saw, it was still a remarkable reflection of the scope of the problem. I am honored by getting to be a part of this research & the candor with which people are sharing information about their experiences. My advisor & I also discussed feedback received from some women about their inability to complete the survey, as it was too triggering for them. My advisor & I had remarkably similar responses…that such a reaction is completely understandable, & that we are humbled by those women’s attempts to contribute to research. This is just a long-winded way of offering my sincere gratitude to everyone.
Also, the survey is still open, & I am still looking for additional participants.
Thank you again!
