WEBINAR OVERVIEW

Since October 2001, more than 2.3 million soldiers have been deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of these, approximately 1.4 million have left active duty and began their transition to civilian life. They are engaged in getting an education and new jobs. Many of these new veterans face psychological difficulties and readjustment issues that are the invisible wounds of war. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs estimates that approximately 51 percent of returning soldiers sought help for a mental health problem, usually Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

In this webinar, we will explore the scope of mental health, neurocognitive, and readjustment problems that previously deployed military veteran students face as they return to our college campuses. We will also explore some unique issues military veterans who have not been deployed to a war zone may bring to college campuses. Finally, we will provide some guidelines on how campus initiatives and education can help these service men and women thrive in their educational endeavors.

WEBINAR OBJECTIVES

  • Learn Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) basics
  • Learn the basic components of trauma and the corresponding human responses
  • Discuss the various triggers that tend to stimulate an increase in intensity of PTSD symptoms
  • Explore and discuss the environmental cues to avoid, hence reducing symptom formation
  • Identify environmental changes that tend to enhance educational success for military veteran students with PTSD on college campuses
