The Center for Human Services Research was awarded a contract from the New York State Office of Victim Services (NYS OVS),to conduct an assessment of the training needs of victim service providers throughout New York State.

The NYS Office of Victim Services Training Center

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.

For more information, contact Dr. Susan Ehrhard-Dietzel.
