Evaluation & Research
CHSR is conducting a needs assessment to:
- Ascertain the basic skills that victim service providers need to provide quality assistance, services, and support to victims and survivors of crime.
- Specify the types of training and topics needed to improve victim services.
- Identify specific modalities and delivery methods of training for victim service providers.
- Determine the sustainability of training efforts over time.
The needs assessment will consist of an online survey of service providers and telephone interviews with key stakeholders. A final report will summarize the findings and provide recommendations for delivering and sustaining trainings that meet the needs of victim service providers across New York State.
