What is it?The Trauma Informed Services Assessment is a survey created by the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma & Mental Health. The purpose of this survey is to learn more about ways that advocacy services currently address the trauma-related needs of survivors. By identifying trends in the services already being offered, and showing where there are opportunities for additional trauma informed practices, this survey will help guide the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition’s work.
Who should take it?Everyone and anyone who provides support to domestic violence survivors, whether directly (front-line) or indirectly (administration/management). We value everyone's experiences.
How do I take it?This survey will take approximately 20-25 minutes to complete.

October 1st 2014 : Press Release
October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Utah is also lending its voice to speak out about this pervasive and life threatening crime that affects the very core of communities, families and individuals.
Governor Herbert has officially announced that October 2014 is Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Utah in a gubernatorial declaration delivered to the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC). Kendra Wyckoff, Executive Director of the Coalition, expressed her gratitude to the Governor for recognizing the impact of domestic violence in our state and the need to raise awareness both of the issue itself and the challenges that survivors face to find compassion, comfort and healing after being exposed to a crime that violates an individual's dignity, self-worth, physical and emotional security.
