Do You Provide PTSD Services to Native American Veterans?
December 14, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
This webinar, “An Overview of PTSD and Treatment Perspectives Among Native American Veterans” will air next Monday, December 14, 2015 “Cultural Competency and Awareness”. The webinar facilitator is Native Scholar and Tribal Veteran, Greg Urquhart.
Webinar Description and Objectives
This workshop will provide information on reports by researchers that Native American’s tend to greatly underutilize healthcare resources provided to them. This has been believed to be because a majority of psychological services are based on a western model of mind body dualism and are not representative of an indigenous world view of holistic healing, which is common among Native American veterans with a traditional worldview.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Identify preferences for aspects of treatment/healing programs, as reported by Native American (NA) Veterans that would facilitate engagement in the healing process.
2. Examine NA Veterans attitudes, beliefs and perceptions toward PTSD and its treatment/healing.
3. Recognize “military culture” in assessing and managing NA Veterans with PTSD.
