Victim Assistance Training Online

Four new VAT Online modules have been launched; including Victims of Sexual Assault in the Military, Elder Abuse, People With Disabilities, and Elderly Populations. Additional VAT Onlinemodules that address other specific crimes and the needs of special populations will be launched in 2015.

VAT Online is a foundational Web-based victim assistance training program that offers victim service providers and allied professionals the opportunity to acquire the essential skills and knowledge they need to more effectively assist victims of crime. VAT Online has four sections: Basics, Core Competencies and Skills, Crimes, and Special Populations. 19 modules will be released in groups related to Crimes and Special Populations starting in December 2014 through June 2015.

  1. The Basics section includes information that all victim service providers must know, including victims' rights and the justice systems, which provides a foundation for victim services.
  2. The Core Competencies and Skills section includes modules such as basic communication skills, confidentiality, and advocacy.
  3. The Crimes section includes the characteristics and prevalence of crime, and other information about crimes including sexual assault, elder abuse, and child abuse.
  4. The Special Populations section includes information and skills to serve special populations such as LGBTQ populations, campus / university victims of crime, and victims of sexual assault in the military.
