Men's Experiences with Partner Aggression launching new study

We are sending you this email because you have participated in or expressed interest in the Men’s Experiences with Partner Aggression Project in the past. We wanted to announce to you that the project has launched a new study, supported by the National Institutes of Health, and is seeking participants. We believe that you or someone you know may be eligible for this study. Thus, we would like to take this opportunity to ask you to post, forward, and/or distribute the below recruitment ad for us. Please note that the below ad is the recruitment ad that was approved by our human subjects committee and thus, it must be displayed as is and cannot be altered. Thank you.

"Researchers at Clark University and Bridgewater State University are conducting a study on men who experienced aggression from their girlfriends, wives, or female partners. If you are a man between the ages of 18-59 and have experienced aggression from a female partner at some point during your life, you may be eligible to participate in this study. We invite you to follow this link to the study webpage http://www.clarku.edu/faculty/dhines/mensdvstudy.htm where you can complete an Internet survey about your experiences. The survey takes about 20-30 minutes to complete, is under the direction of Denise A. Hines, Ph.D., Clark University, and is being funded by the National Institutes of Health. Participation is completely voluntary and you can withdraw your participation at any time."

If you believe that you got this email in error, please reply back and we will take you off of our list. We also apologize for any duplication of this announcement, as you may be on more than one of our lists.

We thank you in advance for all your help and support. Your past support has allowed us to present our work in many different arenas across the U.S. and Canada, including invited workshops and panels to state domestic violence coalitions, Canadian Parliament, and the Massachusetts State Legislature. The issue is getting more and more attention, and we are motivated to continue our work. It is with your support that we are able to get the word out about this important issue.

Best, Denise and Emily
