Dr Taylor’s main research interests are Criminal justice social work: women and domestic violence. Dr Taylor is the Principal Investigator for two current externally funded research projects. The first involves a collaboration with Christchurch Women’s Refuge, the Family Help Trust and Te Awatea Violence Research Centre to explore the experience of women moving away from violence. The second involves a collaboration with the Canterbury Community Law Centre and concerns the experience of Social Security recipients in New Zealand’s benefit system. Dr Taylor has just accepted an invitation to assist the Christchurch Women’s Refuge to review the literature and design a mentoring peer support programme for victims of domestic violence.
