No one deserves to endure violence, abuse or trauma in their lifetime.

IVAT condemns violence and oppression in all its forms. We stand with all who work for equality and peace. Our trainings provide vital information to service providers and advocates enabling us to work together to end violence and abuse. Our Professional Clinical and Forensic Services provide much needed direct services to the community on a sliding scale. IVAT bridges the gaps between research, practice, policy and advocacy. 

Here's how IVAT helped end violence in 2018.
