Veteran-Centric Care Across The Continuum

Samaritan Veterans Conference

Veteran-Centric Care Across the Continuum

PTSD, Moral Injury, Soul Injury: How to Become an Agent of Hope and Healing

Join Samaritan and collaborators for a free veteran conference focusing on veteran-centric care across the continuum.

Samaritan is committed to honoring Veterans and their families by providing care that recognizes their distinctive needs through respectful inquiry, compassionate listening, and grateful acknowledgment.

Samaritan invites you to learn about the importance of providing veteran-centric care across the continuum.

Attend this virtual conference to learn more about what it means to be Veteran-centric, how you can improve the care or service you provide to Veterans, and when and how to refer them to other services and supports.

Learning Objectives:

  1. This presentation will provide an eye-opening experience that awakens you to PTSD, Soul Injury, and Moral Injury.
  2. Learn about secondary wounding and the unique needs of Vietnam Veterans.
  3. Discover how the fear of helplessness and loss of control interferes with peaceful aging, complicating caregiving, and most importantly that Veterans need more than a “thank you.”
  4. Learn how to become an agent of hope and healing for our nation’s Veterans.

Keynote Presentation:

PTSD, Moral Injury, Soul Injury: How to Become an Agent of Hope and Healing

Whether you are a Veteran, love a Veteran, or provide care for a Veteran, Deborah Grassman’s keynote presentation will open your eyes to “warrior wisdom” that will help you not only “die healed”, but live healed. It is well recognized how stoic military culture, combat training, and war itself can change a Veteran in fundamental ways, and how families may also be affected.

This presentation will provide an eye-opening experience that awakens you to PTSD, Soul Injury, and Moral Injury. You will learn about secondary wounding and the unique needs of Vietnam Veterans. You will discover how the fear of helplessness and loss of control interferes with peaceful aging, complicating caregiving, and most importantly that Veterans need more than a “thank you.” Learn how to become an agent of hope and healing for our nation’s Veterans.
