NRCDV Publications

NRCDV staff and expert consultants continually produce original publications designed to support domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts at the local, state and national level. Since 1993, the NRCDV has developed an extensive array of over 450 new resource materials, including fact sheets, policy and practice briefs, online special collections, applied research papers, annotated resource and publication lists, curricula, training materials, and funding alerts.

NRCDV resources are easily reproduced at the local level, are available for distribution at conferences and meetings, and are widely disseminated through VAWnet and other websites, mailings, trainings and social media outlets. Three electronic newsletters – NRCDV, PreventIPV and Funding Alert – are designed to provide targeted, timely accurate, and well-organized information to specific target groups.

Many of the publications listed above are available in hard copy or on CDs, and bulk copies can be made.

NRCDV Resource Materials and Publications

Special Collections
A Special Collection is an organized online collection of select resources on a specific topic related to domestic and sexual violence that provides contextual information to encourage critical analysis and application in practice and policy. Through VAWnet, the NRCDV has developed special collections in dozens of key policy and practice areas, which can be found by clicking here.

Applied Research Papers
Through VAWnet’s Applied Research Forum, researchers and practitioners are commissioned to create brief summaries and interpretations of current research on violence against women. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC) and the University of Minnesota School of Social Work serve as our key partner and provides critical guidance regarding the information and resources created. To date, over 70 Applied Research Papers have been developed and disseminated through VAWnet and other means. For a complete list of these papers and links to them, click here.

Funding Alert
The NRCDV Library Team maintains a searchable grants and funding database and regularly publishes a Funding Alert, providing a synopsis of current fellowships, scholarships, and grants that may be used to address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence, and stalking. To view current funding opportunities, click here.

Technical Assistance Guidance (TAG)
NRCDV’s TA Team often releases Technical Assistance Guidance (TAG) to community-based domestic violence programs and state domestic violence coalitions which is meant to be succinct in answering a very specific question through framing an issue and providing high quality research, resources, or models of service for further education and replication. Click here to view current and past TAG from the NRCDV TA Team.

Online Toolkits
The Runaway & Homeless Youth and Relationship Violence Toolkit was developed by and for advocates in the runaway and homeless youth (RHY) and domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) fields to help programs better address relationship violence among youth who have run away from home, are living on the streets or are homeless.

Comprehensive Resource Packets
Distributed nationally in both hard copy and CD versions, the specialized packets respond to issues of particular concern to domestic violence advocates. The NRCDV recently completed resource packets on Religion and Domestic Violence, and LGBT Communities and Domestic Violence.
