About Promising Practices

More than one in four U.S. veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars have suffered a service-related head injury and two-thirds reported depression. The great concern is that all the problems we’re seeing with head injury, PTSD, and depression could be the tip of the iceberg. There is an urgent need for services that can promote healing, strengthen relationships, and reintegrate our warriors with their families, communities, schools, and employers.

The workshop’s goal is to strengthen the capacity of the professional workforce and the community to effectively respond to the concerns and needs of service members, veterans, and their families in order to heal psychological trauma. 

CEU's Available

0.6 CEUs or 6 contact hours will be awarded for Social Work, Nursing, Psychology and Licensed Professional Counselors.
