Doing research in primary schools: an evaluation of a domestic abuse prevention programme

Nicola Farrelly -Connect Centre PHD Student


Prevention education on domestic abuse aimed at educating all children and young people has been widely developed and delivered in schools in the UK and although programmes are mostly delivered to children over 11, they are increasingly being delivered to children under 11 in primary schools. Yet the evidence base for the effectiveness of prevention work with younger children is currently limited. This mixed methods study aims to provide evidence of the effectiveness and the acceptability of a domestic abuse prevention programme delivered to children aged 10 to 11 in three London schools. The session will focus on how I did this research and the challenges of conducting research in primary schools based on situations I encountered.

Nicola Farrelly is a PhD student within the Connect Centre, School of Social Work at UCLan. Before returning to academia in 2005, she worked as a residential care worker supporting young people in care and has since carried out research on issues affecting children and young people. Her PhD will be an evaluation of a domestic abuse prevention programme for primary school children.

SEMINAR IS FREE. ALL WELCOME. REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED.
