Training program for staff who work with veterans
October 23, 2012
By Dateline staff
A training program is planned next week for UC Davis health professionals and other staff members who might work with students who are military veterans or still in the service.
Two UC Davis units, Student Health and Counseling Services and the Transfer, Reentry and Veterans Center, and the Center for Deployment Psychology are presenting the program on Tuesday (Oct. 30). Continuing education credit is available for licensed psychologists, social workers, and marriage and family therapists.
The morning session is for clinical and nonclinical staff and faculty. Nonclinical participants for whom the program may be helpful include those who work in housing, academic advising, financial aid and the registrar’s office, deans’ offices or campus safety.
Topics for the morning session: culture and experience of service members and veterans on campus, the deployment cycle and its impact on students, and reintegration on campus.
The afternoon program, for clinical staff only, will cover outreach strategies and large group exercises, and provide an overview of campus treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.
