Israeli Trauma Experts Train Boston Locals to Deal with Terror Attacks


boston-bombing8Talia Levanon, director of the Israel Trauma Coalition, and a team from Israel spent last week in the Boston area sharing their expertise in training sessions about recovery, resilience and crisis planning with educators, first-responders, parents, community leaders, and health professionals.

“We bring with us methods developed in Israel of a community approach, as opposed to only an individual approach, as we view this as something that impacted an entire community, and in doing so hopefully help the individual cope better as well.”

They have taken their knowledge abroad in the past, including to Japan after the 2011 tsunami and to hospitals in India.
