While not all service members experience mental health issues, many will experience difficulties returning to the civilian world. Participants will learn about common readjustment issues faced by military and veteran populations. We will also examine the effects of trauma on readapting to life after deployment. In response to the many requests of participants who attended his trainings on Understanding Military Culture, Christopher Morse developed this program to shed light on another important aspect of working with veterans and active military personnel.
This webinar will:
- examine common readjustment reactions following military service and deployment to combat theaters
- explore the effects of trauma on readjustment following combat service
- introduce the use of common military cultural artifacts and concepts in translating therapeutic concepts into principles common to military service
