Support and Care for Veterans and their Families: Assessment
This is the third in a series of twelve courses on serving Veteran populations. They can be taken in order or as stand-alone courses.
Description: The second core culture competency is the provider's ability to assess and understand the worldview of the client through asking culturally informed questions about the patient's unique experience and through the development of knowledge about the culture, in this case, military culture. This module will introduce the elements that comprise the core competency of making culturally informed assessments of Veterans and their families and interview basics for gathering important clinical and diagnostic information. This module describes the common stressors in military culture and their impact on Service members and Veterans across different contexts and populations. These include stressors associated with the military deployment cycle from both a Service member and family member perspective and the most common reactions related to military life stressors.
