Program Development

>> Tony Speier: The Louisiana Spirit
Project has benefited greatly from support

from our federal partners in the crisis
counseling program that have been able

to develop new intervention techniques and new
approaches to dealing with a mass displacement

of the American population and dealing with
the impact of mass trauma and mass casualty.

The process of recovery in Louisiana is ongoing
and will most likely last for several decades.

We have acquired numerous experiences both
in our work force and also on the survivors

that we'd like to share with you.

Hopefully we'll assist other states and other
communities if and when the time comes they have

to deal with issues that
are prolonged in nature.
