Meeting the Unique Needs of Rural & Indigenous Women Victims of Domestic Violence: A Mixed-Methodological Analysis
Katie M. Edwards, Laura Siller
This project is funded by a subcontract from the University of South Dakota.
This project is a collaboration among researchers from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and the University of South Dakota. It is designed to address unique challenges faced by rural Native American survivors of domestic violence, including lack of safe shelter, culturally appropriate services and access to legal aid.
Researchers will examine what resources survivors need to recover and heal from domestic violence, and the extent to which services provided are meeting their needs.
The study involves qualitative interviews and a photovoice component with women residing in a shelter in rural South Dakota.
