SVRI Online Event, 28 September &#8211; 20 October, 2009: Researcher Trauma,
Safety and Sexual Violence Research: </b>Please join us online from 28
September to 23 October to participate in our online moderated discussion on
Researcher Trauma, Safety and Sexual Violence Research. Researching with sexual
violence survivors can be traumatic. The effects of being indirect witnesses of
trauma and abuse can result in secondary traumatic stress or vicarious trauma.
Recognising the impact of researching sensitive topics is important in
developing strategies to support the research team to identify, manage and
where possible prevent vicarious trauma. Through this discussion we are seeking
your help to enable us to look after ourselves better while undertaking sexual
violence research and assist those researchers who follow us. The discussion is
being moderated by Dr Jan Coles and Dr Shazneen Limjerwala. The online
discussion will form the basis for a researcher safety briefing paper and an
online questionnaire. To participate in this discussion join the SVRI Online
