Participants needed for Deakin University study

November 10, 2015

Hi, my name is Dr Arlene Walker and I am conducting a research project with Dr Shannon Hyder, Dr Beth Costa and Ms Richelle Mayshak at Deakin University.

We invite adult men who have ever been in an intimate relationship to take part in this important study about the quality of men’s relationships!

The purpose of this project is to explore your experiences of intimate relationships, relationship disagreements and boundary crossings and see how they are related to health and wellbeing.

A boundary crossing refers to any behaviour that violates or restricts a person’s right to safety, self-determination, self-esteem, privacy, reputation and self-expression.

We believe it is important to investigate the quality of men’s intimate relationships to better understand men’s support needs and provide strategies to assist men who are affected by relationship disagreements and boundary crossings in the future. This project will provide information to assist health providers, policy makers and other services to better support men.

I would like to invite you to participate in this research by completing one of our anonymous surveys. The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. If you think would like to participate please complete the survey online using this address:

Participation is entirely voluntary and anonymous, and will not affect your relationship with Deakin University or with any other individual or organisation.

If you have any further questions please email me (Arlene Walker) on
