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.
  • Stalking Resource Center Training: This program provides training for professionals responding to stalking victims and offenders. Stalking Resource Center staff are also available to participate in training events sponsored by practitioners on the local, state, and national level. 
  • DNA Resource Center Training: This program provides training so communities are able to provide informed and sensitive guidance to victims whose cases involve DNA evidence.
  • National Crime Victim Bar Association: An affiliate of the National Center for Victims of Crime, the National Crime Victim Bar Association conducts regular training seminars on civil remedies for crime victims.

The Responding to Crime Victims with Disabilities National Training Conference was held on December 13-15, 2011, at the JW Marriott Orlando Grand Lakes in Orlando, Florida. The conference served to enhance the knowledge, skills, and abilities of providers to effectively serve people with disabilities who are victims of crime. The conference facilitated partnerships among the fields of victim assistance, advocacy for persons with disabilities, and all allied professions (e.g., adult and child protective service workers, faith-based practitioners, medical practitioners/forensic examiners, mental health practitioners, educators). 

This conference, funded by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims of Crime, was organized by the National Center for Victims of Crime in partnership with the Joint Center on Violence and Victim Studies, the National Council on Independent Living, the National Sheriffs' Association, the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University, Davis Innovations, Inc., and Sharon D'Eusanio.
