What our participants are saying

“The NOVA staff were not only extremely knowledgeable, but they also presented the information in a way that helped our staff feel at ease and able to benefit from the training provided. At the end of the training, staff felt they were better equipped to provide assistance and support to folks we support who disclose to them they had been sexually abused.”

NOVA’s Training Institute Participant and Director of BARC Developmental Services

The Mandated Reporter training was excellent and very interactive which kept my attention and reinforced my knowledge on the subject. Thank you- this was a very helpful training!”
