Correction

After publication of the original article [1], it came to the authors’ attention that there is a typo in the Results section. The following section should have read as follows:

Participants’ report of physical violence during the study.

Overall, 0.85% (4/470) reported that they experienced physical violence since being in the study (0.41% in the control and 1.32% in the intervention, Pearson’s chi2 p = 0.28).
