dc.description.abstract This instrument was used for telephone interviews with women named as victims on police reports of domestic violence. A strength is that this approach seeks the opinions and experiences of women who possibly did not seek help from formal sources other than police. One weakness of the instrument is that it was developed in the late 1990s. It requires privacy for respondents to answer honestly, and currently, many women would probably not answer the phone or might not have the same phone number that they gave police. The instrument was developed in Detroit to reach urban, abused women who were rarely included in formal research. At the time, the Detroit Police Department was in the early stages of developing a domestic violence unit, and the prosecutor's office, along with a few domestic violence programs, were increasing their efforts to provide legal advocacy for abused women. This was an effort to evaluate these interventions from survivors' perspectives.
