Guidance Document: Engaging with Survivors and People Impacted by Intimate Partner Violence to Inform Risk Assessment Strategies

September 1, 2023

DV RISC Survivor Advisory Board

An issue identified by the DV RISC team and Survivor Advisory Board is that many system players and agencies operating in jurisdictions are not actively and continuously obtaining feedback from survivors and impacted people, to inform policies and programs. For jurisdictions that are seeking to identify, implement, or enhance intimate partner violence (IPV) risk and lethality assessment strategies or models, it is imperative that local survivors are engaged to obtain their feedback on a selected strategy or model. To support jurisdictions in engaging survivors, the DV RISC Survivor Advisory Board has created this Guidance Document with some suggested practical strategies to obtain feedback meaningfully and safely from survivors in the community.
