After leaving the war zone, Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to face challenges that influence their adjustment to civilian life. They can experience psychological and emotional distress that impairs their ability to be successful in maintaining a job, attending school, or benefiting from supportive and fulfilling relationships. This program will build upon previous conferences at PSU and will focus on resources and skill development for counselors and mental health providers working with these Veterans and facilitating their personal, family, and social adjustment. Topics include complex PTSD, traumatic brain injury, military families, suicide, threat assessment, spiritual and moral injury, and current evidence-based treatment. Program format will allow substantial interaction among presenters and attendees.
