Many Veterans and their family members turn to pastors or other members of clergy when they have problems. This event can help prepare you to support them. As a member of clergy, you and your place of worship are an important contact point for Veterans in your community. Sometimes clergy members aren’t aware of the Veterans in their congregation or how they might help a Veteran and their family following deployment. You may recognize Veterans who are struggling in their return to civilian life, but not know how to support them.
To educate and inform community clergy and others about:
Military culture and civilian cultures
Common combat and military service-related health concerns
The challenges of readjusting to civilian life
Pastoral care for Veterans and their families
Space is limited so please REGISTER to RESERVE your seat now.
