dc.description.abstract The questionnaire has two parts. Part 1 is a brief questionnaire to screen for a history of domestic violence and identify demographic characteristics. Variables in Parts 1 and 2 include type of disability, type of personal assistance needed, and whether the respondent was ever physically, emotionally, or sexually abused. Part 2 also contains variables on sources of monthly income, who perpetrated the abuse, the abuser's gender, how long the victim knew the abuser, whether the victim sought assistance from a domestic violence program or shelter, and a description of the worst incident of physical abuse. Demographic variables in Parts 1 and 2 include ethnicity, age, employment status, and marital status. All interviewers were specifically trained in issues of domestic violence prior to initiating the interviews to assure that sensitivity and awareness with regard to safety and support were provided to the participants. Participants were offered the option to complete the screen over the phone, by mail, by fax, or online. The tool was developed for a study conducted in 2000-2001 examining the prevalence and risk factors of domestic abuse in women with physical disabilities. The questionnaire used was based on a protocol developed by Nosek (1995) that addressed demographic characteristics, social networks, and abuse history. (Author Abstract). en_US
