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.
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.
