Understanding the Impact of Military Culture and War on Soldiers,
Veterans, and Their Families
Identifying military status is important for any professional working in either a health care or human services agency. This workshop will provide an overview of military culture and its impact on soldiers, veterans and their families to include special topics in: PTSD, military sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, substance abuse, unemployment, homelessness, and criminal justice issues and will help you to determine the important questions to ask individuals and families.
Problems often result from the impact of war and trauma on the health and psychosocial well-being of soldiers, veterans, and their families. We will review evidence-based practices to improve care for returning soldiers and veterans and also discuss initiatives at the federal, state and county levels.
