SOWK 529 - Beyond Combat: Military Social Work Practice

3 Credit Hours
Elective course. Draws from research data that explore the effects of deployment and combat stress on the physical and mental health of active duty U.S. service members and their families. Modalities grounded in a synthesis of trauma, attachment and cognitive-behavioral theories include individual, couple/family, group and clinical case management approaches. Attention to issues of diversity, ethics and use of “professional self” will be included throughout all clinical case discussions. Clinical issues involve intimate partner violence, complex responses of PTSD, other anxiety disorders, depression/suicidality, substance abuse and traumatic brain injury. Managing secondary trauma and the role of transference/countertransference phenomena are central in all discussions. Priority is given to students who have worked with or who anticipate working with soldiers, veterans and their families. In order to include a global perspective, cultural relativity and universality of responses to traumatic events related to armed conflict and war are also highlighted.
