Following our long war in Afghanistan, there has been an ever-increasing number of combat veterans who have returned home after active duty. They have special needs that are unique to them and it is important to have a working knowledge of how to help this population. Veterans are very different from other populations human service providers work with. Their experience is not something that can ever be fully understood by non-veterans.
In this interactive discourse and open dialogue format we will chat about how to better understand the veteran population you serve, by hearing from you and your cohorts, the experiences you have had and the new ways you want to grow to enhance your ability to be of service.
