What kinds of questions do researchers ask, and how do they lead to data that helps shape and re-shape societies’ understandings of phenomena? Asking innovative questions can lead to new social understandings. So, accordingly, understandings of domestic violence have shifted in line with developments in our scientific understanding of society. We are now, as a society, moving to a less adult-centred understanding of the social world, and becoming more concerned with foregrounding children’s sensory and psychological experiences. Therefore we are coming to see domestic violence not just in terms of one adult (normally the male partner) perpetrating domestic violence against the other (usually the female partner). We are now beginning to understand the complex psychological ways that children are affected by domestic violence between their parents. Asking questions that extend the boundaries of investigation can contribute to changing, and improving, our understandings of the world around us.
