Building Evidence for Domestic Violence Services & Interventions: A Framing Paper


In April 2016 the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) contracted with the Center for Policy Research and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence to host a two day roundtable convening of experts to discuss opportunities to build the evidence base for domestic violence (DV) services.  This framing paper provided background information for that discussion.  This paper: 1) briefly summarizes and critiques the current state of rigorous evidence on core DV victim services; 2) identifies some key challenges that have limited the development of—and evidence base for—core services; 3) identifies a number of strategies that could assist in building the evidence base; and 4) outlines some areas of opportunity for strengthening future research and evaluation.
