SVRI. (2010). Briefing paper: Researcher trauma, safety and sexual violence research. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract

Researchers need to prepare for the work they are undertaking, recognising the potential risk to themselves, physically and emotionally, and the potential impact on the quality of research that they do. To assist researchers with the process, this paper explores the experiences of sexual violence researchers from different countries, identifying the issues that traumatized them and the protective strategies they found effective. In response to researcher experiences, this paper is a major step in the development of safety guidelines for sexual violence researchers and their supervisors.
