STAR Behavioral Health Providers: Military Culture Training
The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, Division of Addictive Diseases, The GA Army National Guard, Emory University's Brave Heart Program, Center for Deployment Psychology and the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University have collaborated to bring to GA the STAR Behavioral Health Providers: Military Culture Training. The mission and intention of the Star Behavioral Health Providers is to take care of the Service Members in Georgia and thier families. To do this, SBHP intends to recruit and train interested civilian behavioral health providers in military specific culture and treatments. A second aspect of this inititiative is to create a registry of these specially trained providers so that service members, thier families, and referring professionals can access those trained providers. SBHP will manage the registry to insure providers are qualified to be listed in the registry by licensure and completion of designed trainings. As a result of the training, participants will be able to: - Describe the demograhic landscape of military families; - Identify several stressors faced by service members before deploying, during deployment, and after deployment; - Identify several stressors faced by family members (e.g., spouses, children) before a loved one deploys, during deployment and after retunring home; - Examine adaptive skills used by service members while in the combat zone that may be maladaptive when applied at home after deployment; and, - Summarize strategies for facilitating healthy and positive reunions between returning service members and their families. ***Please click on the link below and read the Study Information Sheet BEFORE you register to attend a session! *** IRB information sheet_11.4.13
