Fawcett, G., Heise, L., Isita-Espejel, L., & Pick, S. (1999). Changing Community Response to Wife Abuse: A Research and Demonstration Project in Iztacalco, Mexico. American Psychologist, 54(1), 41-49.
Language: English

This article describes the process of designing a multifaceted, community based intervention to change community responses to wife abuse in Iztacalco, a low-income community on the outskirts of Mexico City. The goal of the intervention is to encourage women to recognize and disclose abuse and to encourage more constructive, less victim blaming attitudes among family members, friends and the community at large. The intervention is based on the belief that the response that a woman first gets upon disclosing her situation will be critical in setting the course of her future actions. The intervention includes small-scale media (e.g., buttons, posters, events) and a twelve-session workshop to train women as community change agents. The design is based on insights derived from formative research and from the transtheoretical model of behavior change as elaborated by J.O. Prochaska and C.C. DiClemente (1982) and adapted to the special case of domestic violence by J. Brown (1997). The article also illustrates the utility of adapting popular education techniques to the research setting in order to facilitate more honest disclosure of prevailing norms and attitudes about abuse.

Language: English

Fontes, L. A. (1998). Ethics in family violence research: Cross cultural Issues. Family Relations, 47, 53-61.
Language: English

This article examines ethical issues in cross-cultural research on family violence. It suggests ways for researchers to increase understanding and avoid abuses of power. Special attention to informed consent, definitions of the sample, composition of the research team, research methods, and potential harm and benefit are considered key to designing ethical cross-cultural research. The discussion is illustrated with examples from the literature and from the author’s experiences conducting research on sexual abuse in a shantytown in Chile and with Puerto Ricans in the U.S.
