The presentation will highlight what it is like for military members to serve in today s highly fluid and dynamic environment and illustrate key concepts related to the experiences and culture of present day service members. The goal of the presentation is to stimulate the thought process of the audience in relation to existing interventions used to assist Veterans in order to create additional viewpoints to potentially supplement the effectiveness of Behavioral Health Providers and others. These observations are based upon lessons learned from the experience of LTC Stokes while serving as a military Social Worker and from his highly successful combat tour as a Behavioral Health Professional in Afghanistan from 2010 through :30-10:45 Break 10:45-12:00 Issues Surrounding Reintegration Damon Frantz, LCSW, PA NGB PhD Director of Psychological Health, Fort Indiantown Gap This session will focus on exploring the issues and challenges that face service members and their families when they return from deployment.
