Challenge Your Veteran Assumptions: A Deeper Dive. A StateServ Webinar with Deborah Grassman

November 3, 2021 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm EDT

Learning some of the generalizations about Veterans and learning about trauma/PTSD is important because it provides healthcare professionals with some of the common issues that surround Veterans. However, be careful that these common issues don’t become assumptions that replace assessment. Assumptions can lead to false, irrelevant, or wrong conclusions. Join Deborah Grassman NP, author of Peace at Last: Stories of Hope and Healing for Veterans and Their Families for an enlightening presentation that will challenge assumptions that might be interfering with your ability to create a safe emotional environment for Veterans. 

  • Identify at least 5 assumptions that may be interfering with the care you are providing Veterans
  • Recognize how Veterans need more than a well-intentioned “Thank You”
  • Verbalize some of the unique needs of Veterans’ families
