Understanding the broader sense of the military experience, culture, and lifestyle is understudied in counselor education, leaving a gap about the unique mental health needs of veterans and their dependents. Civilian practitioners must establish credibility and trust to find treatment efficacy in treating this population. This webinar discusses the multilayered needs and mechanics of working with veterans, dependents, and military trauma. This webinar also provides strategies for program application on how to integrate military culture and issues into counselor education.
The webinar objectives are as follows: (1) Address the cross-cultural components of effective clinical work with the veteran population, (2) Discuss strategies and essential mechanisms for civilian counselors to best treat veterans and military issues, (3) Considerations for how counselor education programs can infuse the clinical treatment of service members as a specific population into their curriculum.
