The VIGOR is a new safety plan for people who have experienced domestic violence.  The VIGOR represents the first major innovation in safety planning in more than 20 years. The VIGOR leads to a personalized, strengths-based safety plan. The VIGOR allows for a detailed assessment of all risks, including concerns about children or other loved ones, financial issues, social issues, and personal values. The VIGOR gives victims the opportunity to also think about their strengths.  The focus on strengths is the part most women say they appreciate the most. Finally, the VIGOR helps women identify and choose options for coping with victimization.
