Subject:Re: Resources for researchers handling sensitive data

Together with national organizations of victim service providers, child advocates and first responders, we are developing a web-based, evidence-informed Vicarious Trauma Toolkit, funded by a grant from the Office for Victims of Crime. It is in the midst of being tested by seven pilot site communities around the country. We will be ready to launch it in January. Attached is a description of the project. If you would like to be added to our mailing list to hear about the launch and other updates, please email us at VTToolkit@neu.edu . Beth E.

As you know, a lot of the information being abstracted about domestic and sexual violence can be difficult and traumatic to work with day in and day out. I was wondering if there are recommendations or resources that you use when or your staff are working with sensitive or emotionally trying research projects. I appreciate your help and look forward to your collective insight. Many Thanks, Julie Halverson
