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.
An additional Master List of all ADVIP members organized by country can be found on this page.

Susie Nickerson (Greenwood, United States) Provider
Mrs. Elizabeth R. Perry (Spartanburg, United States) Provider
I received my B.S. from University of South Carolina-Upstate in Interdisciplinary Sciences (with Concentrations in Psychology and Sociology), and my M.A. and Ed.S. from Gardner-Webb University in Mental Health Counseling. Since graduation, I have been working for the Spartanburg Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission (SADAC), which is transitioning into The Forrester Center for Behavioral Health as we shift our focus to include more areas of assistance within the community. One of the initial areas we are expanding into is to offer treatment services for Domestic Violence offenders. Our program is court-approved, and is a certified provider of Domestic Violence treatment within Spartanburg County, SC. Our program is new, but I have an existing background in working within Domestic Violence, as I spent almost 2 years working with Safe Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition in Spartanburg, SC as a Victim Advocate both in the shelter and in the court system. I am excited about transitioning to working with offenders to begin addressing the issue in a new way.
Services or Research Projects
Our agency is excited to be offering group treatment offered to both male and female perpetrators (in separate groups), individual counseling offered to both victims and offenders, substance abuse counseling/treatment, and community referrals to improve the lives of the individuals we serve. Our services are available at flexible times and schedules. We hope that this program will only expand in the future, and increase our opportunity to serve those in our county and state.
