CVR Virtual Journal Club
You’re invited to the Center for Victim Research Virtual Journal Club! Every other month, service providers and researchers will read and discuss online a research article about victim services and crime victims.
Benefits: access subscription articles through the CVR Library, learn about research findings, network with other practitioners across the U.S., and add your perspective about the emerging evidence base for victim services.
