As we go to press with our first catalogue, DiaNova is diligently pursuing groundbreaking work on creating both an academically and experientially-based certification program that will be local-agency ready; in our case, we will coordinate first with the City and County of San Francisco and then expand throughout California, the U.S., and eventually internationally. As such, one of our foremost goals is to create a safe, stalwart and legally-supported profession that will meet the exacting needs of their clients and do so by going above and beyond the required accreditation, state or federal requirements.
At DiaNova we will also focus on educating other healthcare and related professionals on how to identify people with potential intimacy anxiety issues and on directing and referring people to our tools and methodologies for assessing and diagnosing such problems. We are committed to strive constantly to improve and keep relevant our methods, tools, and efficiency.
DiaNova has three stakeholder groups, faculty, students and community investors. We need an outstanding and well-rewarded faculty to build the programs to teach the students to become mentors and therapists that will help heal the 10 million sufferers. We need the outstanding students that will pioneer the widespread deployment of the DiaNova methodologies. We need community investors that will catalyze the development of the DiaNova programs, and attract the best students independent of ability to pay. As president and on behalf of the board, we are dedicating our time and effort to create these programs and will keep all our stakeholders informed about our journey, the challenges and successes, and the difference–the social return–DiaNova is creating.
