2 Measurments in Social Work Reserach
The desired outcome that I picked to conduct a survey for women and children who are a target or
witness of domestic violence would be of knowledge and behavior. I believe that the agency provides
the services to the women and children to help change their behavior and knowledge on domestic
violence and why it is important to get out of the situation for themselves and children sake. By
conducting this survey to the women in the shelter will help give us knowledge on the outcome on how
much they have learned and if their behavior will change when they leave the shelter.
