The University of Barcelona and the Autonomous University of Madrid, with support from by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and by the FEDER funds of the European Union (PSI2016-75915-P), have initiated a new study focusing on the effects of membership in groups with abusive practices, especially the difficulties in leaving such groups and adjusting to life afterwards. The aim of the study is to create a base of data to better inform caregivers who work with people leaving high-control abusive situations by highlighting the special needs of survivors.

Even if you have not been in a group where abusive practices took place, we invite everyone to take the time to participate, as the more data gathered, the more accurate picture will emerge. Participation is anonymous.

You may take the survey here; if you have any further questions, please contact the Faculty of Psychology, University of Barcelona, Spain, by email or telephone at  +34 933125177
