9AB7 Contemporary Mental Health Issues and Treatment for Returning Veterans

Course Description

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 benefitting from supportive and fulfilling relationships. Building upon previous conferences at PSU, this program 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  ssessment, spiritual and moral injury, and current evidence-based treatments. Program format allows substantial interaction among presenters and attendees.

Sponsored by Portland State University Continuing Education and TriWest Healthcare Alliance in partnership with VA Northwest Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center.
