.This month, the Office for Victims of Crime Training and Technical Assistance Center (OVC TTAC) will launch a new multimedia web training series to introduce the web-based toolkit Helping Victims of Mass Violence and Terrorism: Planning, Response, Recovery, and Resources to civic, government, and business sectors that are interested in developing a comprehensive victim assistance plan. Lessons learned from past incidents indicate that with advanced planning (including establishing victim assistance protocols), and developing and maintaining multidisciplinary partnerships, communities are better prepared to engage a holistic approach to victim assistance to ensure that each victim's needs are met. The web training will provide an indepth overview of partnerships, planning, response, and recovery.

To participate in this important training, we encourage you to register for the web-based training event that aligns most closely with your geographic region. (If you are unable to attend the training event scheduled for your geographic region, please register for one of the other events.)
