Home of the Brave: An Introduction to Working with Returning Veterans and their Families

10-27-17 9:00 am - 10-27-17 4:30 pm
UNH School of Law
2 White Street, Concord, NH, United States

Over 2 million Americans have served in the last 15 years of the Global War on Terrorism.  Many are returning home and looking for the anonymity of community mental health centers and private practices for mental health care.  They live and work among us and their children attend our public schools.  Many will not identify themselves as returning veterans (or loved ones of returning veterans) unless asked directly.

 

This workshop will prepare the non-military helping professional for culturally-informed relationships with this unique population.  The focus will be on the values, beliefs and attitudes towards seeking help as well as the unique language used in different military branches.  Returning veterans often complain about having to spend their first session explaining military culture to civilian professionals.  Clinical implications of working with a military member will be explored through case vignettes.   Cultural sensitivity will inform the practice approaches of workshop participants.

    We all know part of retaining good social workers is to provide them with meaningful professional development opportunities. New social workers are entering an exciting and important field that can sometimes be overwhelming. Connecting new social workers with others "in the same boat" can provide supports and resources necessary to be successful in their careers.
    The NASW NH Chapter is pleased to offer a seminar series for new social workers. This seminar series will meet monthly for eight sessions over lunch time. Lynn Stanley, LICSW, Executive Director of NASW NH, will be facilitating this series with help from Melissa Grudinski, MSW, a Chapter Board Member and new social worker herself. We will bring in seasoned social workers to address topics such as getting the most out of your supervision, building your professional network, the role of NASW in their careers, and clinical licensing. The last four sessions will address topics identified by participants. A portion of the time each session will be devoted to participants' questions and concerns.
    If you are a supervisor of a social worker with fewer than three years of experience, we ask you to recommend they attend. A referral from a supervisor is preferred, though not required.
    The series is free to NASW Members and $220 for non-members.
    Seminar registration is limited to a total of 15. Participants may be at the NASW NH office in Concord or attend virtually via Zoom.
