dc.description.abstract MOVERS is a 13-item scale that measures survivor empowerment within the domain of safety. It is available in English and Spanish. It is composed of three subscales that assess distinct domains of safety related empowerment: Internal Tools assesses the extent to which a survivor has developed a set of safety-related goals and a belief in her ability to accomplish them; Expectation of Support assesses the degree to which a survivor perceives that she has the support she needs to move towards safety; and Trade-offs assesses the extent to which the survivor feels that her efforts to achieve safety will trigger new problems. MOVERS was developed in the context of an ongoing community-based participatory research project in response to the need for domestic violence and sexual assault programs to evaluate the effectiveness of their programs.
