Results from Our 2007-2009 Survey:
We’d like to thank Sean C. McCarthy for working on a series of fact sheets that succinctly summarize our main study findings. These findings are or will be elaborated upon in our publications, but the fact sheets can be quite useful for policymakers or practitioners who want “just the facts” without all of the jargon and background theory that research journal articles tend to have.
Fact sheet #1: Intimate Terrorism by Women Towards Men: Does it Exist?
Fact sheet #2: A Closer Look at Men Who Sustain Intimate Terrorism by Women
Fact sheet #5: Where Do Men Seek Help and How Helpful Are Those Resources?
