2016 Statewide Training and Technical Assistance Needs Assessment
MNADV just released a fact sheet with the 2016 Statewide Training and Technical Assistance Needs Assessment results. Conducted with domestic violence service providers, these results guide MNADV's annual training plan and future projects. Both leadership and frontline workers provide input.

Top Training Needs:
  • Leadership: Self-care for staff
  • Frontline: Effects of domestic violence on children
  • Frontline: High danger safety planning
Top Underserved Groups Identified by both Leadership and Frontline Workers:
  • People who speak Spanish
  • People with mental health concerns
  • People who are homeless or living in poverty
This year, sections were added to capture specifics on underserved populations, including language, ethnicity, and country of origin. Domestic violence service providers also had the opportunity to identify training gaps for their community partners.
