NOVA Crisis Response During Disasters
An area that is often overlooked, or understaffed, following disasters or traumatic events are the mental health needs of the community and its first responders. No matter the size of the event it is a marathon to recovery. This session will provide participants with an understanding of the NOVA Crisis Intervention Model. The various applications of the model along with the resources NOVA has to be of assistance for large or small scale incidents.
