The Member Programs’ Survey: Trauma-Informed Work in DSV Programs (2015)


From 2013 to 2015, NCDVTMH worked with state and territory domestic and sexual violence coalitions to measure changes in their member programs’ capacity for engaging in work from a trauma-informed perspective. As part of this initiative, NCDVTMH developed the Member Programs’ Survey (MPS) for state/territory domestic and sexual violence coalitions. It has sections on organizational approaches to becoming more trauma-informed; availability of trauma-specific, culturally specific, and trauma-informed services; challenges and strengths in responding to the trauma-related needs of survivors; and supports available for program staff members. This report provides baseline results from the MPS’s core sections, which show the remarkable depth, range, and diversity of trauma-informed practices being used by 211 domestic and sexual violence programs across 10 states.
