October 21, 2010, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at VA Pittsburgh, 7180 Highland Drive, Pittsburgh, PA (Free Parking Available)
The intent of this conference is to help care providers and the religious community better understand some of the physical and behavioral health issues associated with reintegration into the community.
At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:
♦ Gain an understanding of the challenges that servicemen and servicewomen face when returning to their families and communities;
♦ Discuss approaches that can help veterans and their families build resiliency;
♦ Examine methods of collaboration that help to prepare providers and the religious community with the means to meet the needs of returning veterans.
This conference is intended for care providers and the religious community
who have contact with veterans, their spouses and children.
