A Review of the Literature on Qualitative Studies of Sexual Abuse and People with Disabilities: Findings and Methodologies

(04 Sep 2011)

This review of national and international literature on methodologies for a possible study of abuse of people with disabilities included literature reviews, consultation with experts, discussions with individuals in key organisations and bodies, and a review of possible sampling mechanisms. The research team drew from a wide range of disability and abuse support service providers, disability and abuse representative organisations, and other national bodies such as the Gardai, the HSE etc. It explored issues such as (1) Current practice and procedures regarding reporting, investigating and providing redress in cases of abuse, and (2) Views on the challenges and solutions to accessing an appropriate sample for the national study and capturing their experiences.
