"Exploring the Intersection of Gang Membership and Childhood Exposure to Domestic Abuse

The Road Home study focuses on the lives of young men who have experienced domestic violence and abuse (DVA) in childhood and become involved with gangs. It is a mixed method narrative research project with two main data collection streams. The first is life-story interviews (Plummer, 2001) within which men are asked to bring in three music tracks to assist them in telling their story. Borrowing from BBC’s Desert Island Disks, music is used in this way to help difficult stories to be told and to give another dimension to the interviews. Secondly, ex-gang involved peer mentors will be invited to a group using Memory Work (Haug, 1999), where collective experiences and memories are shared and analysed together in a small group setting. This research aims to help increase understanding of these dual affected young men’s lives, as well as harvest knowledge of how agencies can support them better"
