Mental Health for Military Populations: Core Clinical Competencies for Treating Service Members, Veterans, and Their Families
Saturday, October 19, 2019 @ 12:00-1:30pm ET (11CT/10MT/9PT)
This webinar is part three of a six-part specialty training series Addiction Treatment in Military & Veteran Culture. Cultural competency in working with military-affiliated populations requires that providers have familiarity with military culture and a degree of comfort in working with that population. In order to meet the need for more defined aspects of cultural competence, a task force supported by the Military and Government Counseling Association proposed a set of Competencies for Counseling Military Populations (Prosek et al., 2018). The purpose of this presentation is to provide attendees with an overview of the proposed competencies. Participants will be able to identify the different domains that a provider must understand in order to provide the best service to the military-affiliated population.
