Info for those wanting to serve veterans and their families

I recently watched a 2 hour CE (made free by the APA until 12/31/12) about the common stresses of military personnel and their families. While it didn’t have any information on particular counseling interventions, it did do a decent job giving a brief overview of military lingo and differences between the branches (e.g., why you would NEVER want to refer to a Marine as a soldier). The speaker is from the Deployment Psychology training institute and that site will provide you with ample clinical training continuing education. Some of the on-line trainings are free (unless you want CE credits).
