Subject:Resources for researchers handling sensitive data

Dear Colleagues, My staff are working on a research project which entails abstracting police report and court data on assaults and homicides. As you know, a lot of the information being abstracted about domestic and sexual violence can be difficult and traumatic to work with day in and day out. I was wondering if there are recommendations or resources that you use when or your staff are working with sensitive or emotionally trying research projects. I appreciate your help and look forward to your collective insight. Many Thanks, Julie Halverson
