SOCW 660 - Clinical Practice with Veterans


3 Credits
This course prepares social workers for community based clinical practice with veterans and their families, with particular attention to signature injuries among recently returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, such as traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, substance abuse and suicide. The course explores the history and context for delivery of mental health services to military service members, veterans and their families; the mediating influence of military culture in outreach and treatment; and the development of evidence-based best practices in culturally responsive, trauma-informed care.
