NATAL
is proud to enter a third year
of collaborations with
Patton Veterans Project (PVP) on
I Was there Film Workshop

This pioneering program uses digital video story telling workshops to encourage US and Israeli veterans to visually portray their personal story.This experience helps them to make sense of their traumatic experience to facilitate the process of healing for those suffering from PTSD.

Based on survey results from the hundreds of American veterans who have participated in the workshops, participants report a 20% average decrease in PTSD symptoms over the course of the workshop.

To date, six joint workshops have been conducted in the US and Israel, with additional workshops currently being scheduled in Israel and the US.
