Research on sensitive topics and with people in vulnerable situations
We have conduct projects on emotional, sensitive or challenging topics for government agencies including ASIC, the New South Wales Police and the Motor Accidents Authority (now SIRA). We are very experienced interviewing people who are disabled or distressed, or whose circumstances make them vulnerable.
- Victims of crimes such as investment fraud, burglary or assault,
- People who have been denied welfare, or who have sought compensation,
- Older people facing decisions about health and aged care,
- People with disabilities and illnesses.
This can be qualitative or quantitative research.
Qualitatively, these are reflective, listening-based projects relying heavily on one-on-one interviewing. We custom-design projective and expressive techniques to help people recollect and reflect.
