NATAL is proud and honored to have its own in-house research and evaluation department which gathers information and provides research and assessment services to all of NATAL’s units. Led by Professor Marc Gelkopf, NATAL programs are constantly evaluated for their efficacy alongside the regular publication of academic studies and articles in international journals and online media. Much of the work of this department focuses on the long-term psychological impact of living under continuous threat of terror and war, and enhancing NATAL’s understanding of the psychological trauma that follows conflict and terrorism.
