The webinar series and “Ask the Expert” sessions were developed under an Office on Violence Against Women grant focused on enhancing victim-centered approaches in community corrections. A victim/survivor-centered approach focuses on the concerns and needs of the victim/survivor to ensure the compassionate and sensitive delivery of services in a non-judgmental manner. These topics were selected based on findings of in-person and virtual listening sessions with professionals from around the country.
