During this workshop, you will learn effective strategies and approaches to provide specialized care to veterans and military personnel.
Our veteran speaker, Kristin Gyford, LCSW (USAF Veteran) from Still Serving Counseling, will share her clinical insights, drawing from her extensive experience and studies in working with this unique population. In addition, community resources will will be there to speak to the resources they provide for veterans, a veteran panel on issues associated with the lived experiences of mental health care, and receive 12 continuing education (CE) of which 2 (CE) are for Suicide Prevention training.
Through engaging presentations, case studies, and interactive discussions, you will gain valuable knowledge on trauma-informed care, unique challenges to this population, and learn about other mental health challenges commonly faced by veterans. We will also explore evidence-based interventions and techniques to support their well-being and ways that others (i.e. family members, peer support specialists, Addiction Counselors, and different medical staff) can help support veterans they see at their different settings.
