Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to write a grant proposal for a psycho-educational support group program for male survivors of domestic violence (DV). Male victims exposed to DV experience many challenges including limited resources, disbelief from law enforcement and shame. An extensive literature review was conducted on the underserved population of male DV victims from both heterosexual and same-gender relationships. The lack of literature and available resources demonstrated that a societal shift is necessary to see DV as a problem not exclusive to any gender, race or sexual orientation. Anecdotally, support groups have assisted male victims in healing from their experience of DV and building social networks. A grant search identified possible funding sources for a support group for male DV victims. The actual submission and funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
