Essentials for Educators (EDUCATOR)

Victim Assistance → Crisis Intervention


The Essentials for Educators will provide teachers and other school personnel with knowledge and practice of the NOVA model of crisis intervention. This week long training has been customized specifically for the school community.

Participants who complete this 40 hour course will become equipped to use NOVA’s (National Organization for Victim Assistance) crisis intervention model to assist students, parents and co-workers impacted by victimization or traumatic events. Additionally, participants will increase their knowledge about the judicial system, victims’ rights as well as resources available for both victims and the educator providing the service.

This hybrid learning course requires both in person and online participation during the week of July 15- July 19, 2019. In person sessions will be held at 137 S. Main St. from 8am-4pm.
