Some ADVIP members have organized into local chapters.  Local chapters allow members to meet face-to-face, or through Skype or other electronic forums, to network and advance evidence-based practice in their local communities. A list of local ADVIP chapters can be found on this page.

In this Searchable Master List, you may click on member’s name to view their full profile page containing information about their location, background, training, intervention services and research interests.  In the member’s profile page, you can click on the country, state, province or city to view all other members in those categories.

There are two additional search boxes.  The one on the left allows you to find members according to their status as either Researcher or Provider.    The box on the right allows you to conduct a more refined search, to find members by city, state or province, research interests (e.g., domestic violence risk factors, motivation, impact on children) or clinical services and modalities (e.g., batterer groups, parenting programs, substance abuse treatment, etc.).  Keep in mind that some profile data can be entered in multiple ways , so if a search in unsuccessful try a related keyword – for example, “group counseling” instead of “group therapy,” “LGBTQ” instead of “LGBT,” and so forth.
