As the research partner for SWI, CORNERS is currently conducting a process evaluation that documents the creation and implementation of the SWI and developing a research framework for evaluating the impact of the SWI on both individual staff and organizational functioning.
The current process evaluation seeks to answer the following questions:
- How was the SWI developed and implemented at INVC?
- What lessons and best practices can be learned and applied to other Community Violence Intervention (CVI) organizations looking to invest in the wellbeing of their staff?
Project findings will help guide future research and practice as awareness of the critical importance of holistically addressing trauma and promoting wellness among CVI workers continues to increase.
