Abstract

This dissertation is a collective case study that developed an understanding about the knowledge professionals and community agency personnel in Haiti have about gendered adolescent interpersonal violence (GAIV). The study also explored the strategies and interventions utilized by professionals who work with adolescents, in response to GAIV. The researcher gathered data about the participating professionals’ knowledge of GAIV, their interventions and approaches with adolescents, and the ways in which Haitian culture shaped the ways in which they intervened. Five professionals, including a physician, a nurse, a social worker, a former school vice principal and a teacher were interviewed over Skype and completed three electronic, reflective journals.

This presentation will discuss methodological issues associated with international research and reflect on the researchers experiences conducting Skype interviews and using electronic journals.
