Author:Nelson-Gardell, Debra

Subject:RE: Resources for researchers handling sensitive data

Coles, Astbury, Dartnall, and Limjerwala addressed this topic in their 2014 publication "A qualitative exploration of researcher trauma and researchers' responses to investigating sexual violence," in Violence Against Women, Vol. 20(1), 95-117. Both the results they report (including a section entitled "Coping Strategies That Helped") and the reference list for the publication may provide some guidance. ................................................................................................................................

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
