The war in Afghanistan and Iraq has been a challenge to military families and communities everywhere. Join us this Veteran’s Day week for an inspirational, educational, and proactive conference which will explore the role of spirituality and psychology in healing. Our panel of experts will lead us in discussion of what is moral injury, best practices with veterans and families, PTSD, the use of ritual, art and community in healing, in addition to employer and educational resources. Active military, veterans, families, employers, as well as clergy, mental health workers and community members are welcome to participate.
