This intermediate workshop provides practitioners with short-term psychological approaches to help wounded service members and military veterans. Presenters offer the latest research, findings, programs, practices, and techniques on how to assess clients and then how to provide interventions, treatments, and rehabilitation techniques (including employment and education) appropriate and effective for each client's current condition. Presenters’ focus is on interventions that can be performed under the financial and time constraints set by insurance companies. A review of the ethics of treating this population is presented.
Learning Objectives
1. Utilize knowledge learned about the military culture to practice competently with military members and veterans.
2. Utilize the numerous TBI classification systems to classify and assess TBI in patients and use the findings from these assessments to develop treatment programs.
3. Diagnose PTSD in clients and design cost-efficient and effective treatment programs.
4. Provide services aligned with APA’s Ethical Standards to members of the military and their families and know my limitations and responsibilities under these standards.
5. List the ways resilience can help clients with PTSD and TBI and the ways that my clients can build their own resilience.
6. Identify a range of treatments and treatment engagement outcomes that can be affected by supported education or employment, education psychosocial rehabilitation programs, complementary and adjunct therapies, and peer training models.
7. Provide suggestions about assistive and adaptive technologies and where they can be found so clients can fully function in school or on a job.
