Learning Objectives:

2. Learn how posttraumatic stress is different for veterans - and how you can help.

3. Learn about moral injury, and how it is crucial to the mental health of our veterans.

 

Presenter: Angela Elain Baranski, MSW intern. Angela Baranski has had a broad range of clinical experiences as a Michigan State University clinical social work student, specializing in the treatment of combat veterans. She has interned for the National Guard and the Women's Center of Greater Lansing, working with veterans, women who presented with a variety of clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, and domestic violence, and children. She graduates from MSU this May. 

 

Before attending MSU for a MSW degree, Angela was a newspaper reporter in Midland for more than 10 years, where she covered the National Guard and came to know the struggles faced by combat veterans and their families. This led her to her current vocation of clinical social work with an emphasis on combat veterans. She was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by the Michigan National Guard for her reporting coverage during the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars. During her social work internship at the National Guard, she worked with the director of psychological health to glean knowledge about how guard members are assessed for psychological health and the different ways the Guard works to combat the rising suicide rates.

 

1.5 CEs available. 

 

Free for NASW members, $20 for future members.
