Working with the Military: An Overview in Cultural Competence
Christopher Morse, LCSW, MVF-ASW

Friday, April 17, 2020

9:00 am -4:00 pm

Location: Sacred Heart University, 5151 Park Ave., Fairfield, CT, Martire Building

(Martire Forum)
This seminar satisfies the continuing education requirement for content on military members, veterans and their families or the cultural competence requirement.

As our Active Duty, Veterans and Military Families continue to provide us a sense of freedom that often costs them great sacrifice due to their selfless acts of service, it is incumbent upon Social Work professionals to provide  environments that are conducive to this populations’ well- being. Social Work practitioners, clinicians and educators encounter the families, children and soldiers on a regular basis throughout their professions. Whether it be interfacing in educational settings with the Veterans, children and caregivers of military families, providing health care, offering clinical services or the myriad of other services that social workers provide, it is imperative that we be as prepared as possible to meet their needs.  This seminar will provide the opportunity   to better serve military members and families based on their unique needs and explore potential resources. 

 In accordance to our understanding of the impact of culture in providing services, this seminar will also increase your conceptualization of the Veteran culture. Particularly, it will address the difficulty with readjustment to civilian life that both Veterans and Active Duty personnel encounter and the impact it has on their families. Social workers will be provided knowledge to engage planfully and respectfully.
