Is working with veterans part of your AOR?

 "As retired Army (E7), it was helpful to have the information on the other service branches. Excellent Course!  Thank you."

 "This was very informative and important to know as a Veteran and counselor."


Serving the behavioral health needs of our veterans starts with understanding where they're coming from.

Military Cultural Competence is a great first step!

Currently, well over 2 million people are serving in the Active or Selected Reserve components of the United States military, around the country and around the world. With over 1.64 million deployments since 2001 and a continued presence in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas of conflict, the need for quality, culturally competent care for service members and their families has never been greater.

In this course you will acquire knowledge regarding military culture so that you can understand, communicate, and effectively interact with service members and their families. Having basic knowledge regarding the values, structure, policies, and expectations of the military can promote a stronger patient-provider alliance and help develop skills to provide more effective clinical care. This course teaches you military rank structure, the branches of service along with their missions and core values, active versus reserve status components, demographic characteristics and general and deployment related terms. You will utilize a blend of experiential exercises and self-study to give you the tools you need to implement this knowledge.

This course is appropriate for all clinicians working with this population.
