Description:

While the military offers positive experiences for many women, the rate of trauma among female veterans is quite high. This unit focuses exclusively on female service members who suffer the lasting effects of trauma in the military. The issues—and strategies for service providers—are drawn out around a central case study that illustrates how trauma can impact every aspect of a woman’s life. 

Who should take this module:

  • Frontline workers
  • Managers

Learning objectives:

  • Describe the impact of trauma on female veterans, including the increased risk of homelessness
  • Identify barriers to accessing care among female veterans who have experienced trauma
  • Identify concrete strategies for working with female veterans who have experienced trauma
