Health & Disability Advocates presents a workshop for community-based organizations interested in serving the behavioral and mental health needs of military Service Members, Veterans, and their families. No previous experience or prerequisite is necessary.

  • What is Military Sexual Trauma?
  • Who is affected by it?
  • What are the signs and symptoms of a survivor of MST?
  • What is the difference between a civilian and military survivor of a sexual trauma?
  • What can I do to help?

Topics to be presented on throughout the day include: Civilian Introduction to Rape Culture, a Military Introduction to Rape Culture, Context and Background of Military Sexual Trauma, Trauma-Informed Care, First Disclosures of Military Sexual Trauma, Principles of Care, Alternative Therapies and Treatment, an overview of Treatment Modalities & Referrals. Discuss practical ways for anyone to work with survivors of trauma. We hope you leave with a better understanding how community organizations can help or collaborate with military organizations, and clinical approaches to working with this unique population. Additionally, we hope this session will build a foundation for a detailed conversation both during the training but also into the future.
