Free & Open to the Public!
Part of "Treating the Invisible Wounds of War: Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans, Families and Care Providers" series, a collaboration among the Coming Home Project, UCSF Health Effects of War Grand Rounds, and UCTV.
This will be a clinical discussion of the mental health needs of women who have served in the military, with particular emphasis on the emergent needs of “OIF/OEF” women (Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom).
Two main questions will be addressed:
- What do we need to know about working with military women (e.g., how are they different, what are their particular treatment needs)?
- How can we best serve them (e..g, what services are needed, what are the effective treatments, how best to work with them clinically)?
Speaker Darrah Westrup, Ph.D.
