Dr. Barbara Andrews, program director of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling (CMHC) program at Antioch University New England (AUNE), has been selected to present at the annual conference of the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES) in Philadelphia on October 7-11, 2015. This year’s conference theme is “Leadership for Culturally Relevant Pedagogy and Practice.”
Andrews’ presentation, “Supervision and Training for Counselors Working with Military Personnel, Veterans, and Families: Unique Needs of Individuals Traumatized by Military Experience,” will address specific components of supervision and training for professional mental health clinicians so they may more effectively provide appropriate services to meet the critical needs of this growing population. A training overview designed to assist civilian clinicians to further expand their knowledge and awareness of military cultural issues will be included and will highlight specific recommendations from current military personnel and families on how civilian clinicians can better meet their needs.
For clinicians interested in this topic, AUNE now offers an online post-master’s certificate in Counseling Military Service Personnel and Their Families. The program is designed to provide convenient, high-quality specialized training for licensed mental health providers in New England who want to offer their services to meet the critical needs of military personnel and their families.
