9/11 Training on Vets/Families

Veterans and Families Under Fire Workshop Online Registration

August 6, 2011

Please Join VETERAN’S HEART Georgia and LPCA-GA as we widen our lens and adjust our focus to include all that are affected by an individual’s military service.

Tremendous amounts of concern, effort and resources are directed towards helping “The Veteran” adjust to the transition home from war and military service. But despite research indicating that social engagement and support from one’s closest relationships have a profound influence on healing from the visible and invisible wounds of war, families and others connected to our service personnel may receive less attention, information and support and often feel left to their own devices to find help.


Clinical and Ethical Practices for Treating the Effects of War

On Friday September 9, 2011 (nearly 10 years to the day from the impetus for our country’s longest war), Dr. Blaine Everson*, co-author of Families Under Fire, will lead us in an exploration of a Family Systems-based approach to working with our veterans, their families, and others with whom they are connected.

Some of our objectives and goals for this workshop include:

  1. gaining a deeper understanding of how military culture and language impact individual and relational problems experienced by veterans and their family members seen in clinical practice, and recognition that this understanding is necessary for ethical practice.
  2. developing a thorough understanding of the ethics associated with assessing, evaluating, and treating veterans and their families from a systemic perspective
  3. enhancing our work through utilizing knowledge of in-depth ethical approaches to therapeutic conversations and interventions with military veterans and family members in a way that balances the sometimes divergent needs of the service member with those of their families.
  4. A lunchtime panel discussion and dialogue with veterans of military service, and military family members will allow us to broaden our perspective and approach to working with those who have guarded and protected us and their families who have also uniquely served.
