Abstract

Domestic violence is a well-documented public health issue with many implications for a range of health outcomes that has recently received renewed attention, in part due to several high profile cases reported on in the media. With the burgeoning of new technologies through which to offer victims and survivors of domestic violence with crisis intervention and other support and referral services, it has become increasingly important to investigate how people access and use those technologies. This type of investigation is an important step in ensuring that these services are catered and prepared for the needs of the people using them. Additionally, this type of investigation also highlights the ability of federal policies to keep up with key trends in how victims and survivors access the support they need, or the lack thereof. The object of this study has been to employ STATA-based quantitative analysis to investigate how hotline visitors are using the online chat services, their expressed needs during the chats, and how those needs are met by the chat sessions. Preliminary results have indicated that regardless of how the service user contacts the hotline (through phone, text, or online chat), they initially learn about the hotline and how to access its services through the internet. Continued analysis of survey results may present informative findings regarding the demographic characteristics of those who contact the hotline and their preferences for different modes of support delivery in terms of ease of use, privacy, safety, and other primary concerns. The implications of this study and further research may reveal additional patterns in usage and modes of access to the National Domestic Violence and Dating Abuse Helpline, guiding future targeted efforts to increase and expand access among various demographics as well as to refine national level policies that seek to respond to the needs of victims and survivors of domestic violence.
