GREENSBORO, N.C. — Survivors of domestic abuse are sharing some of their struggles as part of a study at UNC-Greensboro.

The study, which has a partnership with Greensboro Police, is focusing on what abuse victims dealt with as they worked through the legal system and county agencies.

“Our real goal is to try to identify ways that we can identify services to survivors of domestic violence here in Guilford County,” said Dr. Jacquelyn White, associate dean for research at UNCG.

Study organizers said they have finished interviews with service providers, and they are now interviewing victims to see what worked and what didn’t.

The study was possible in part though a community-based research grant from UNCG’s Office of Leadership and Learning.
