NRCDV staff and expert consultants continually produce original publications designed to support domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts at the local, state and national level. Since 1993, the NRCDV has developed an extensive array of over 450 resource materials including fact sheets, policy and practice briefs, technical assistance guidance documents, online special collections, applied research papers, curricula, training materials, and more.

NRCDV resources are easily reproduced at the local level, are available for distribution at conferences and meetings, and are widely disseminated through VAWnet and other websites, mailings, trainings and social media outlets. Our electronic newsletters – NRCDV & PreventIPV – are designed to provide relevant and timely resources and tools to support movement work.

NRCDV Resource Materials and Publications

Special Collections
A Special Collection is an organized online collection of select resources on a specific topic related to domestic and sexual violence that provides contextual information to encourage critical analysis and application in practice and policy. Through VAWnet, the NRCDV has developed special collections in dozens of key policy and practice areas, which can be found here. Access a full list of Special Collections here.

Applied Research Papers
Through VAWnet’s Applied Research Forum, researchers and practitioners are commissioned to create brief summaries and interpretations of current research on violence against women. To date, over 70 Applied Research Papers have been developed and disseminated through VAWnet and other means. Access a full list here.

Technical Assistance Guidance (TAG)
NRCDV’s Programs & Prevention Team often releases Technical Assistance Guidance (TAG) to community-based domestic violence programs and state domestic violence coalitions which is meant to be succinct in answering a very specific question through framing an issue and providing high quality research, resources, or models of service for further education and replication. Access a full list of TA Guidance documents here.

Holiday Toolbox
This collection of Technical Assistance (TA) Guidance documents and other resources provides best practice information for addressing domestic violence during the holiday season. Topics include positive visioning, promoting wellness and managing stress, cultural sensitivity, responding to the food-related needs of survivors in shelter, considerations for working with survivors from specific populations, and understanding the available research.

Online Toolkits
The Runaway & Homeless Youth and Relationship Violence Toolkit was developed by and for advocates in the runaway and homeless youth (RHY) and domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) fields to help programs better address relationship violence among youth who have run away from home, are living on the streets or are homeless.
