A Civilian Counselor’s Primer for Counseling Veterans

A civilian counselor's primer for counseling veterans

A new book by Jose E. Coll, Ph.D. , Eugenia L. Weiss, Ph.D. Herbert A. Exum, Ph.D.

A Civilian Counselor’s Primer for Counseling Veterans is based on the notion that the training, socialization and indoctrination into the U.S. armed forces creates belief systems, values and a lifestyle among service members (and their dependents) that is different than those of the civilian world.

Thus, these differences warrant the utilization of the term “military culture,” as we address the needs of this segment of the U.S. population.  The purpose is of this book is to provide professionals (as well as interns) the fundamental information they need to work successfully with veterans and families.  The reader will learn about military training and culture, the types of stressors service members’ confront, the psychological disorders they are likely to present with, the impact of these disorders and stressors on the family and the various treatment options currently available.
