Join us for an online training on military sexual trauma (MST) with Swords to Plowshares, California Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CALCASA), and the California Department of Veterans Affairs.
The purpose for this training is to provide information and training to professionals who interact with and serve survivors of military sexual assault. It is imperative that community providers and advocates are aware of issues unique to veterans, including military sexual trauma, provide trauma-informed appropriate care, and assist them to identify and secure veteran specific benefits and care at the state or federal level.
Many veterans, especially women veterans do not get their mental, physical or behavioral health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Instead, they may seek services from community-based providers instead. Some may have undefined trauma as a result of a sexual assault or harassment in service and need treatment from a culturally informed provider.
We will discuss access to care, parameters for successful VA benefit claims, and treatment considerations for providers, advocates, and others working on behalf of veteran men and women who have experienced military sexual trauma. Interactive case studies and opportunities for discussion will be provided.
