Smartphone app aids college-age women in abusive relationships
Date:2/18/2014

app is filled with helpful features, including:

  • Information on healthy relationship dynamics, common relationship violence myths and potential behavioral red flags.
  • Sample scripts for approaching friends who are possibly in dangerous relationships.
  • Personalized safety plans based on users' priorities and backed by scientific research.
  • Links to local and national resources, including the option to live chat with trained peer advocates through LoveisRespect.org.
  • User privacy safeguards, in case partners monitor phone activity, such as:
  • An innocuous name and logo.
  • Password protection and no option to change access code.
  • Tips for protecting privacy on smartphones and social networks.

The One Love Foundation and the Urban Health Institute at Johns Hopkins University provided funding for development of the app. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Arizona State University and Oregon Health and Science University also participated in the research and app development. The collaborative study, "Survivor feedback on a safety decision aid smartphone application for college-age women in abusive relationships," was published online in the Journal of Technology in Human Services in December 2013.
