This webinar explores the intersectionality of bias, power, and privilege. Awareness and reflection on these influential societal forces provide counselors a basis for understanding the negative impact such forces have on vulnerable populations and society as a whole. Mental health professionals, supervisors, and others with a working knowledge of these issues, coupled with relevant strategies and techniques, are better equipped to join with and support clients and communities in efforts to push back against these negative influences. This session has been approved for 1 CE credit hour.

The Civilian Counselor Working with Veterans and Their Dependents: Implications for Counselor Preparation
Inaugural SACES Webinar sponsored by the SACES Social Justice and Human Rights Interest Network
Dr. Jessica Melendez Tyler
Monday, November 26, 2018, 4-5 pm EST
Offered through GoToTraining.
Understanding the broader sense of the military experience, culture, and lifestyle is understudied in counselor education, leaving a gap about the unique mental health needs of veterans and their dependents. Civilian practitioners must establish credibility and trust to find treatment efficacy in treating this population. This webinar discusses the multilayered needs and mechanics of working with veterans, dependents, and military trauma. This webinar also provides strategies for program application on how to integrate military culture and issues into counselor education.
The webinar objectives are as follows: (1) Address the cross-cultural components of effective clinical work with the veteran population, (2) Discuss strategies and essential mechanisms for civilian counselors to best treat veterans and military issues, (3) Considerations for how counselor education programs can infuse the clinical treatment of service members as a specific population into their curriculum.
