II.SVRI Members Requests

1) Request for Input: Monitoring and Evaluating Reintegration Programmes for Children

The Centre for Rural Childhood, University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) Scotland is developing a toolkit to help organisations monitor and evaluate reintegration programmes for children. This project is funded by the Oak Foundation and is part of a larger project on recovery and reintegration (www.childrecovery.info<http://www.childrecovery.info>). This work is being supported by an inter-agency steering group including representatives from EveryChild, Save the Children, Mkombozi and IOM.

If you or your organisation has experience of reintegration programming with children who have become separated from their families and communities, please help us by answering our short questionnaire. The responses to this questionnaire will provide information that will contribute to the development of the toolkit. The questionnaire should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. The questionnaire can be accessed here http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SXPNL2Z and will close on the 29th April. Please feel free to circulate this information to others who may be involved in reintegration programming or have experience of evaluating such programmes.

2) Call for Submissions to the Violence Prevention Trials Register: Prevent Violence Evidence Base

The Prevent Violence Evidence Base brings together abstracts and information for published studies that have measured the effectiveness of interventions to prevent violence. The Evidence Base has just been updated with studies from 2012 and now includes 458 studies from across the world. All WHO regions are represented in the database, with new studies added from countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand and Turkey. Studies cover a wide range of violence types and include school-based interventions, community-based interventions and those that take place in health or clinical settings. To search or browse the updated Evidence Base please visit www.preventviolence.info/evidence_base.aspx<http://www.preventviolence.info/evidence_base.aspx>.

Launched in 2012, the Violence Prevention Trials Register now contains 29 submissions detailing information on the design and implementation of current and future violence prevention research. If you are currently undertaking a violence prevention outcome evaluation study or are due to start work in the near future, they would love to hear about it. To view the register or discuss a relevant study, please visit www.preventviolence.info/trials_register.aspx<http://www.preventviolence.info/trials_register.aspx>. The Evidence Base and the Violence Prevention Trials Register are the results of an ongoing collaboration between the Centre for Public Health at Liverpool John Moores University, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

3) Invitation for Independent Domestic Violence Advisors to Take Part in Vicarious Trauma Research

Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs) are being invited to take part in new research into the influence of relaxation techniques on the severity of vicarious trauma (VT). Clare Elcombe, an MSc student in Applied Positive Psychology at the University of East London, is organising a study to establish whether the completion of daily activities can have an impact on the effects of VT.

To be eligible, you should be a CAADA or Women's Aid-trained IDVA working full-time with a caseload of at least twenty mid to high risk victims of domestic abuse. You will need to be able to commit ten minutes each day over a two week period in April or May and, due to the practical nature of the study, you should be comfortable using apps and have access to an Apple device. To express an interest or to simply find out more, please email Clare directly at: clare_elcombe at hotmail.com<mailto:clare_elcombe at hotmail.com> or visit: http://www.caada.org.uk/news/caada-enews-Feb2013-IVDA-VT-study.htm.

4) Request for Contacts to Inform/Support Sexual Violence Research in Sub-Sahara Africa for Dissertation

Gianina Pellegrini is a doctoral student at Saybrook University. Gianina is working on obtaining a Ph.D. degree in Psychology with a focus on Social Transformation and International Peace and Conflict Resolution. Her primary area of interest is on the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war in modern conflicts. She has completed all of her coursework and is now preparing to start her dissertation.

For the dissertation research Gianina would like to examine post-conflict efforts to support survivors of conflict-related sexual violence, as well as look at what various organizations (such as local NGOs or government sponsored programs) are doing to prevent future conflict-related sexual violence. She is searching for a person currently working with issues pertaining to conflict-related sexual violence who would be willing to work with her, either formally as one of her dissertation committee members or informally as a consultant, to help her construct the most effective research project. Gianina would sincerely appreciate hearing from anyone who would be interested in speaking with her, discussing ideas and particularly suggesting areas that are under-researched. She would like her research to contribute to the research on sexual violence in conflict and positively impact future prevention efforts. Please feel free to contact her at: Gianina.Pellegrini at gmail.com<mailto:Gianina.Pellegrini at gmail.com>.
