Victim Advocacy

Courses for Victim Advocates and Allied Professionals

In October 2018, NEVAA, a grant-funded program that brings training to students and professionals who work with victims of crime, became a Creighton University program. Today we offer nationally accredited training to students and professionals who work with (or will work with) victims of crime.

Our training courses are tailored to the needs of Nebraska victims and those who serve them. You’ll find comprehensive, academically based, fundamental education for all areas of victim advocacy. Courses are offered throughout the year and topics include interpersonal and professional development, covering subjects like communication, empathy, professional advocacy, self-care and more.

The increasingly complex needs of crime victims have resulted in a demand for more coordinated and multidisciplinary approaches to training in the victim services field, and we’re committed to providing that training.
