Advocacy Research for CAS
November 6, 2014 permalink
Advocacy research is conducted not to find the truth, but to support a predetermined conclusion. Catherine Frei has encountered an instance conducted by Ian DeGeer of Wilfrid Laurier University, a researcher with an extensive history and employment with the CAS. Catherine wished to participate in the study, and was welcomed until the researcher found that she had a bad experience with CAS currently before the courts and the CFSRB. The researcher dropped her immediately.
Hi there folks, I recently received an invitation to take part in a research study from the very university which I attend. The name of the project is: An Institutional Ethnography of the Family Violence Project. They want to hear from individuals who have received services from local counselling services, Police forced, Family and Children's Services (CAS), Community Action Program for Children, Crown Attorney's Office legal support, Victim Witness, Women's Crisis Services, Legal Aid, Credit Counselling and others ..... I am suspect about the motives of this study when I looked at the student completing their thesis and discovered that they have an extensive history and employment with the CAS. They were instrumental in amendments made to the risk assessments used by the CAS and various other collaborative efforts with other ..."Experts." I contacted them to indicate that I was interested in taking the survey (which they will pay you $30 btw) and there were a few exchanges back and forth until I mentioned that I have a CFSRB complaint at the moment and a pending lawsuit against the local agency - the correspondence ceased immediately! This is what I suspected would happen which then prompted me to contact the chair of the department to have a little sit down about my concerns which I will be doing tomorrow. I think that any woman/man that has something to say about this and would like to take part should contact Researcher, Ian DeGeer, Phd candidate at firstname.lastname@example.org or the faculty of social work at Wilfrid Laurier University, research project #4032. Hope to see people use their voice on this matter.
