Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies offers a webinar for mental health providers called Working with Military Service Members and Veterans: Assessment and Cultural Competency 101 on January 31, 11am-12:30pm (EST).
Military veterans and service members currently serving are seeking community mental health in greater numbers than ever before. Yet, many community providers lack awareness and understanding of military culture, and may not feel competent to adequately assess their problems and needs. This webinar provides a basic overview of military culture, to include examination of its explicit and implicit elements, how to interact with military veterans and service members, as well as a review of key assessment areas, techniques, and strategies.
