Examples of Domestic Violence Organizations Assessing their EBPs

The RCDV: CPC staff has assisted domestic violence organizations in the states of Ohio and West Virginia assess their current programs and/or practices. In both cases, the RCDV: CPC staff assisted these organizations by using the EBP Guide to identify current resources in data collection and evaluation capacity.

Ohio Domestic Violence Network


With assistance from RCDV: CPC staff, staff from the Ohio Domestic Violence Network (ODVN) identified existing data as a source to (a) understand their clients’ needs and (b) help guide their future work advocating for domestic violence survivors. Some of the existing data informed ODVN staff about common characteristics of their clients and cases, as well as common outcomes in domestic violence cases (e.g., recommendations in custody cases).

West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence


With assistance from RCDV: CPC staff, staff from the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence Network (WVCADV) developed evaluation questions related to (a) training effectiveness, (b) statewide changes, and (c) whether changes are associated with better outcomes for survivors and their children in West Virginia. While some of their evaluation questions could be answered by existing data, RCDV: CPC staff also assisted WVCADV staff in developing pre- and post-surveys to assess training effectiveness.
