dc.description.abstract The methodology described below reflects our intention to identify a wide range of services across multiple systems that serve children and families affected by domestic violence. There is an increasing emphasis from Federal agencies and other funders to use evidence-based strategies, but at the same time, there remains the need to ensure that evidence-based models are flexible enough to accommodate the needs of different cultures, ethnicities, and communities. Our approach was informed by the understanding that most services for CEDV have existed for only a few decades and therefore these services are supported by varying types and levels of evidence. Many of the earliest programs serving CEDV grew out of grass-roots efforts and communitybased responses. Some of these programs have been operating for more than 20 years but may have had limited opportunities for evaluation. Funding to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions for CEDV has been limited and there have been significant barriers to using true experimental designs such as randomized controlled trials with community-based services. These barriers include concerns about safety, cost, ethical considerations when working with domestic violence, and the diverse needs of different cultures and communities. Another key consideration is that decades of field experience have informed some of the best practices for working with CEDV. With all of this in mind, the best evidence of an intervention’s efficacy may be a combination of research and practice that can be used by advocates and others to influence systems of service delivery. en_US
