Sexual Trauma and Veterans: Supporting Transformation and Healing
Date: May 3 2013 8:00am - 4:45pm Location: Graduate Campus
This one-day training will include nationally recognized experts on Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Because a large number of veterans seek care outside the VA, this training is held in support of clinicians and other healthcare providers interested in working with veterans who have experienced sexual trauma.
The purpose of this conference is to provide VA and community clinicians with state of the art evidence-based and multicultural knowledge on the evaluation and clinical care of Veterans and Service Members who have experienced MST and to establish a learning community focused on enhancing care to survivors.
After this training participants will be able to:
- Educate colleagues and Veterans about the rates of MST and the most common related conditions impacting emotional, physical, and cultural well-being
- Increase proficiency in treating men and women who have experienced MST by implementing current treatment approaches
- Develop and maintain access to community-based and VA providers in order to improve care for survivors of MST
This event is co-sponsored by Returning Veterans Project, Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Taskforce Portland VAMC, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Employee Education System and the VA Northwest Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center.
