On April 18, CIR held a colloquium to launch its new journal — Military Behavioral Health – the first academic journal dedicated to the biopsychosocial health and well-being of servicemembers, veterans and families impacted by military service.
The colloquium featured presentations by several contributors to the first issue of the journal, to be published later this year. Members of the local community, CIR’s Advisory Boards, and USC faculty and staff were in attendance at the event. Information on the presenters, as well as presentation slides, are available below:
“Correlates of the Perceived Value of a Third-Location Decompression Program for Canadian Forces Personnel Returning from Afghanistan” (PRESENTATION SLIDES)
Colonel Rakesh Jetly, M.D., FRCPC, Mental Health and Psychiatry Advisor, Canadian Forces Surgeon General
“Facilitators and Barriers in Effective Clinical Practice with Redeployed Military and Veteran Couples”
Kathryn Basham, Ph.D., LICSW, Professor, Smith College School of Social Work
