Find a Partner

The first step in collaboration is finding a partner to work with. Whether you’re new to the victim services field or just starting to think about research and evaluation, the Center for Victim Research is here to support your search.

Learn how to select a partner and build successful collaborations by visiting our “Working Together” Tools & Training page. There you’ll find resources such as tips for Building Successful Researcher-Practitioner Collaborations, Quick References to Finding a Research Partner and MOU for Researcher-Practitioner Collaborations, webinars on researcher-practitioner partnerships, and more.

Next, learn about the experiences of those who have built researcher-practitioner partnerships, including those featured as part of our Podcasts and those who have worked in Collaborations Supported by CVR.

Then, use the directories below to find a service provider or a victim researcher in your state.

CVR welcomes researchers of all levels to join our directory of researchers. Researchers that would like to be included in our directory are invited to register.

CVR provides this directory as a public service and does not endorse any individual researcher.
