In WARRIOR, Doc Springer takes us close to the struggles of our bravest citizens during and after they face traumatic challenges. She draws from the experiences of our warfighters to help us understand true courage and the bonds of love that keep all of us in the fight. As she explains…
“We continually thank warriors for their service – yet treat them as though they are broken gear. We donate millions of dollars to support warriors, yet they tell me that they feel invisible, like ghosts passing unseen through a culture that is utterly alien to them. Through my unique role as a trusted psychologist and ‘Doc’ to our nation’s warfighters, I’ve learned insights that can help us navigate this time of unprecedented trauma. WARRIOR is a book about the isolation, grief, shame, moral injury, pain, shock and sense of disconnection that are the central challenge to bringing our warriors home from war—and confronting the current crisis of our personal and national mental health.

Learning Objectives:

Define stigma in a military context as it relates to mental health symptoms and the seeking of treatment for those symptoms.

Describe how previous experience many military personnel might have had with mental health providers may play into their perception of stigma regarding seeking treatment.

Describe at least 2 differences between the perceived goals of military service and supportive therapy, and discuss how these different contribute to mental health stigma.

Explain for the benefit of a prospective veteran patient at least 1 way in which military training and the task of healing in therapy may be similar.

Articulate at least 1 specific technique to help a military or veteran patient overcome barriers to seeking treatment within their cultural context.

2 Hours of CE is expected for this opportunity. ALL CE will culminate after the last event.
