Michael Chovanec, Associate Professor of Social Work, was awarded $6670.00 for Engagement Research.The purpose of this research proposal was to apply the PCOMS using the guidelines from phase one, with a small local domestic abuse program facilitated by the researcher. Pre and post data would be collected using the Outcome Rating Scale from the PCOMS tools, and the Social Empathy Index (SEI). In addition, a sample of 8 to 15 program completers will be recruited to be interviewed by a research assistant to identify the client’s experience in using PCOMS. Phase three of the project was to use the findings from phase two to support external funding and assist in recruitment of one or two larger domestic abuse programs, expanding the evaluation of the PCOMS within a domestic abuse treatment setting.
