Psychotherapy with Military Veterans: Cultural Competence and Common Clinical Issues

Holly Passi, PsyD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Jesse Brown VA Medical Center

1.5 CE/CEUs for psychologists, LCSWs  and LCPCs will be provided.


Psychotherapy with military veterans can be challenging or confusing for clinicians who may have little exposure or opportunity to understand their lived experiences. This program will orient participants’ to common lived experiences of military veterans with the aim of advancing clinician cultural competence. Topics will include descriptions of military culture, deployment experiences, and the transition/reintegration to civilian life. 

There will also be a discussion of how military culture, transitional challenges, combat trauma, or moral injury may manifest in the psychotherapeutic process, including guidance on navigating this effectively. Finally, the program will outline common clinical issues, best practices, and VA resources to assist in or enhance veterans’ care.  There will be time set aside for discussion and audience questions.
