May 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$35
3 CEUs* (SW,MH, CD)
This training will include a viewing of the movie Restrepo (about 90 minutes) followed by a presentation focusing on the various operational stressors faced by our returning veterans and how these stressors affect the transition back to civilian life.
Topics such as pre-existing military adverse events, PTSD, loss, moral injury, substance use, and military sexual trauma will be addressed. Questions and discussion will be encouraged throughout the event. This presentation will include treatment information but is mostly focused on increasing clinician awareness of the multiple issues with which our returning veterans are grappling.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE FILM AND PRESENTATION MIGHT CONTAIN CONTENT THAT COULD BE DISTURBING TO SOME ATTENDEES AND ATTENDEES ARE ENCOURAGED TO USE SELF-CARE AS NEEDED.
