New OVC TTAC Special Focus Areas
The Office of Justice Programs’ Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Training and Technical Assistance Center (TTAC) recently added two new special focus areas — mass violence and terrorism and vicarious trauma.
Mass violence and terrorism helps victim service providers respond to victims of mass violence. Vicarious trauma trains victim service providers to positively handle trauma in order to avoid secondary traumatization and traumatic stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout. In addition to these resources, OVC TTAC offers a variety of tools, resources, and funding opportunities to aid professionals in supporting crime victims.
