Supporting Veterans and Their Families: A Case Study and Practice Review
Lambert, Serena M.; Morgan, Michael M.
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v17 n3 p241-250 2009
Increasing numbers of men and women are returning home from two warfronts in the Middle East with mental health concerns. Evidence suggests that the mental health community is ill prepared to address the needs of these veterans and their family members. The authors present a brief case study that helped call their attention to this problem and their own need as professionals to prepare and serve veterans. Implications for counselors, supervisors, and counselor educators are presented that address treatment, supervision, and self-care suggestions.
