Annotation: The U.S. Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime‘s (OVC’s) Training and Technical Assistance Center (TTAC) describes its seven multimedia web trainings to introduce the “Helping Victims of Mass Violence & Terrorism: Planning, Response, Recovery, and Resources Toolkit” (June 2-28, 2016)
Abstract: One session was held late in the afternoon to reach the western States and territories. OVC TTAC collaborated with the FBI Office for Victim Assistance to include a brief presentation by a member of the Victim Assistance Rapid Deployment Team to highlight that program. The web trainings included background on OVC’s efforts to support victims of mass violence and terrorism over the years, including Anti-Terrorism Emergency Assistance Program support and the development of the Toolkit. The presenters emphasized the importance of partnerships and planning throughout the web training. They used the Family Assistance Center Victim Assistance Protocol to guide participants through the Partnerships and Planning, Response, and Recovery components of the Toolkit. OVC TTAC created video excerpts from the full Toolkit videos to emphasize key points. OVC TTAC staff described the range of technical assistance available to participants in implementing the Toolkit. OVC TTAC sent a follow-up email after each session that included links to the Toolkit, the FBI Fact Sheet, the recording of the web training, participants’ State emergency response plans, and an application for participants to use in requesting technical assistance. Information is provided on number of attendees, State/territories represented, professions represented, agency affiliations, and the web site where the recording is available.
