The Model Standards for Serving Victims and Survivors of Crime training was recently updated to reflect emerging challenges faced by the victim services field. The Model Standards e-publication provides guidelines and suggestions to help victim service practitioners and program administrators improve the quality and consistency of their response to crime victims.
In this training, you will learn about the importance of the Model Standards to the field and to your organization, explore your organization’s capabilities to implement the Model Standards, and develop a plan to integrate the Model Standards into your program’s policies, procedures, and activities. The training is intended for victim service program managers. It will be delivered online, over the course of 4 weeks, beginning on July 1, 2019. Each week, except for the introductory week, will include a 75-minute facilitated webinar. You should expect to spend an additional hour on assignments and readings. Like all OVC TTAC trainings, there is no cost to participate. Please note: Space is limited, so apply today to reserve your spot.
All webinars are conducted on Fridays from 11:30 a.m.–12:45 p.m. eastern time. The sessions are recorded, so if you are unable to participate in a live webinar, you will be able to listen to the recording.
