OVC Web Forum

OVC has developed a Web forum, called the OVC Message Board To Help Exchange Lessons and Practices (HELP) in Victim Services, to link victim service providers and allied professionals with colleagues throughout the Nation who face similar challenges and experiences. The Web forum, which functions similar to a message or bulletin board, is an online center for ongoing, indepth discussions of specific topics and issues. Some of the topics discussed include compassion fatigue, confidentiality issues, victims with disabilities, domestic violence, identity theft, restitution, posttraumatic stress disorder, and trafficking in persons. The forum offers users a means to share ideas, suggestions, and recommendations concerning promising practices, best practices, and victim issues. OVC's Web Forum was pilot tested in Arizona, Delaware, and South Carolina and will be launched nationally in early 2004. For more details, visit the OVC Web Forum.
