This course is designed to provide the knowledge and skills that will assist students in developing the necessary social service skills to work effectively with returning veterans.

This course is designed for students interested in human service vocations, community service workers, veterans and their family members, as well as those just interested in knowing more about veteran's issues.It is not necessary to be involved with the military to attend class, and both veterans and non-veterans are welcome!

This course seeks to identify the diverse challenges facing those who have returned to the community following deployment or completion of their military service. Although Veteran Reintegration is a challenge for all generations, emphasis is placed on the current challenges for those who have served in the Middle East conflicts, including issues of reintegrating into family, school, job, and community, as well as serious concerns such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance abuse, marital issues and family management, as well as coping with anxiety and depression.

Please note: This is a "self-support" course. This self-support fee listed above replaces the cost of regular tuition and is paid regardless of student residency status or total course load. Course fees are subject to change at anytime. For more information on tuition consult the Registrar's Office. Students using financial aid, VA benefits, or other scholarships should review the details of their financial package to confirm that self-support fee courses are covered.
