This catalog explains the role of the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) of the Department of Justice, describes the content and schedule for each currently available training curriculum that the OVC has developed, discusses costs and registration procedures, and explains how to apply for assistance to schedule an onsite training.
The mission of OVC is to enhance the country’s capability to assist crime victims and to provide leadership in changing attitudes and developing policies and practices that promote justice and healing for all victims of crimes. The OVC Training and Technical Assistance Center provides victim service professionals a central access point for a range of victim resources. OVC’s national training program brings professional trainings to locations across the country on a regular basis. The catalog lists the trainings alphabetically by topic and includes a status designation that indicates whether the training is available, in development, or scheduled. Training topics include building victim programs, community-based crisis response initiatives, cultural considerations in assisting victims, death notification, juvenile court response to victims of juvenile offenders, training attorneys to respond to domestic violence and elder abuse, and services for victims of gang violence.
