  2. Participants will understand the importance of the relationship between improving our ethics and becoming a highly competent counselor.
  3. Participants will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the 5 methods presented to prevent ethical violations.

Serving Those Who Served Us: Working with Veterans, Combat Stress and PTSD

When a veteran returns home post-deployment, reintegration can be challenging for both the veteran and family members. Understanding how deployment and experiencing combat can lead to mental health challenges, including PTSD, can be beneficial in assisting veterans who are integrating back into civilian life. This workshop focuses on developing a deeper and more comprehensive overview of these issues for veterans and how to effectively work with veterans and their families in a clinical setting including resources for veterans.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Common readjustment issues for veterans and their families will be discussed and how to assist with and address these issues for trauma recovery, including military sexual trauma
  2. Reactions and triggers to Combat stress will be explored and various coping techniques and interventions will be presented on how to reduce the intensity of these symptoms
  3. Focus will be given to resources for veterans, particularly those experiencing combat stress and trauma, and the importance of peer support services
