  Annotation: The transcript presents the conference plenary panel discussion on "The Importance of Research/Practitioner Collaboration" in developing and implementing domestic violence programs.
Abstract: Jeremy Travis, the director of the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), reviews NIJ's efforts to develop a collaboration between researchers and practitioners in the research it funds on violence against women. Two panel members describe how research played an important part in the development of programs for black women victimized by domestic violence. The research involved literature reviews of relevant research, as well as surveys and focus groups of black women who had been victims of violence committed by intimate partners. Program services have been tailored to the assessment of the needs of these victims as the victims themselves have identified them. Two other panel members describe how evaluation research has played a central role in the evolution of a domestic violence project in Minnesota that involves community intervention, programs for victims and abusers, and a children's program. These panel members discuss the ongoing role of evaluation in molding project policies and components.
