Join your peers for a one-day training course for Veteran peer specialists and others interested in supporting Veterans offered by DBSA, Veteran Peers Navigating Moral Paradoxes. Co-sponsor is the Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA.
Most Veterans feel discomfort when returning to civilian life, regardless of where and how they served. Military service changes a person and can cultivate paradoxes within them that can lead to development of mental health or substance use conditions.
This course will help participants understand the key role peers play in helping their fellow Veterans successfully address common moral paradoxes. It will also introduce attendees to three valuable peer support tools to help Veterans resolve these paradoxes in their lives.
