Claire Fultz, DSW, MSW, MSC, LCSW-C, CCM, JCS Director of Mental Health
Military service members, their families, and veterans have unique needs that require a culturally competent approach to services and treatment. This training will provide insight into the “military mindset” and discuss key factors in delivering services sensitively and effectively to achieve positive outcomes.
As a result of this training, participants will:
- Learn the structure, mindset, and norms which govern those who
serve in the armed forces and impact their transition post service.
- Increase their understanding of the military and veteran culture including the unique experiences and contributions of those who have served their country
- Be better prepared to bridge the civilian-military gap and communicate more easily with military-affiliated individuals in our community.
