While the U.S. is seeing increased attention paid to mental health, substance abuse, and suicide issues within the military and veteran communities, there concern about the nation’s capacity to provide the services needed.

More and more veterans are obtaining mental health care in the civilian sector, but frequently community clinicians have a limited understanding of military and veteran culture. To assist in developing a therapeutic rapport with veterans and service members, this webinar will provide clinicians with an overview of military culture, norms, and mores and explore how military life and the combat environment may shape the presentation of the client throughout treatment.

This webinar will:

• provide a brief overview of military culture and cultural components
• examine how military service may later affect a veteran’s future interactions
• identify aspects of military culture that may influence the presentation of the client
