Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) Releases New Online Course on Military Culture

North Carolina is the home to nearly 800,000 veterans, over 125,000 military members who have served in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, and over 155,000 military children. While veterans are eligible for health and behavioral health services from the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), only 51% of Gulf II veterans have enrolled for VA services. The remaining 49% as well as military spouses and children have sought their care from public and private health care facilities. Due to this significant sector of military-connected individuals, it is critical for health and behavioral health care professionals to be competent in military culture.

Tthe CDP, in collaboration with the US Department of Defense, the US Department of Veteran Affairs, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, has launched the first of four modules in an online course, Military Culture: Core Competencies for Health Care Professionals. The course as a whole will offer a total of eight Continuing Education credits, although each module may also be taken individually. All four modules are anticipated to be available in February 2014.

  • Module 1: Self-Assessment and Introduction to Military Ethos
  • Module 2: Military Organization and Roles
  • Module 3: Stressors and Resources
  • Module 4: Treatment, Resources, and Tools
