Presenters:

  • Dr. Gerda Bardhoshi, Department of Rehabilitation and Counselor Education
  • Ashlie Obrecht, Counseling Psychology, doctoral student and Army veteran

In this workshop, participants will discuss the unique cultural and experiential differences between civilian/community members versus military personnel. They and their families have particular non-traditional situations that lead to strong areas of resilience as well as specific areas of need for themselves, their children and families. Areas to be examined include medical and mental health, psychosocial adjustment, financial, educational, and career transitions. There are general needs that change for the family within the deployment cycle. In addition, there may be particular more specialized concerns regarding combat-related PTSD, moral injury, substance use or mental health and marital concerns that will be over viewed. Please register online.
