Dual Mission: An Innovative Field Model for Training Social Work Students for Work with Veterans
Selber, Katherine; Chavkin, Nancy Feyl; Biggs, Mary Jo Garcia
Journal of Social Work Education, v51 suppl 1 pS59-S75 2015
This descriptive article explores a collaborative model that blends the dual missions of training social work students to work with military personnel, veterans, and their families while serving student veterans on campus. The model consists of 2 main components: (1) a nationally recognized service component for providing academic, health and behavioral health, career, and research and technical assistance services for student veterans as they transition into, through, and out of higher education; and (2) a training component for social work students that includes a campus-based field unit that trains social work students to work with student veterans, a course on helping troops and veterans transition, and a federal grant designed to produce social work graduates for working with veterans.
