EDUC C53 - Military-to-Veteran Transition


(3)

This course introduces students to the challenges being faced by today’s military service members and their families as they transition from military to civilian life. Pressing issues such as divorce, physical and psychological disability, substance abuse, suicide, unemployment, violence, and homelessness will be examined as they relate to the military veteran population.  Students will develop a working knowledge of federal, state, and local support resources that are currently available to assist military service members in the transition process. The course goal is to provide student counselors with the information and tools they need to effectively assist military clients in anticipating and overcoming the challenges of soldier-to-veteran transition.
