Training

The National Center values education and training as a mechanism to improve the way crime victims are treated and understood. The following training activities and programs developed and executed by the National Center serve as a resource for those who work with victims, represent victims' perspectives, raise awareness, develop services, and foster systemic change:

  • National Training Institute: Our annual National Conference emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to sharing promising practices, current research, and effective programs and policies that are victim-centered, evidence-based, and research-informed. Our National Conferences are forums for victim service and criminal justice professionals, allied practitioners, policymakers, and researchers to share current developments and build new collaborations.
