This workshop will build the capacity of faith leaders to more effectively minister to the veteran community and support veterans through appropriate referral. Participants become familiar with the services provided by the VHA and how to help veterans access VA resources. You will begin to understand the hidden wounds and moral conflict experienced by many veterans, recognize the clinical constructs of "PTSD" and "moral injury" as well as criticism of those constructs; and appreciate the contribution clergy and faith communities are making in addressing hidden wounds and moral conflicts.

Lunch will be provided. Parking available at lot and on the street.
