Details: Relatives and friends often become caregivers for veterans, yet receive little preparation for such a role. Dealing daily with loved ones who are angry, sad, depressed, traumatized, suicidal and often unpredictable, they frequently feel isolated and alone. To address this need, VTSC is offering a three-hour workshop designed specifically for “non-professional” caregivers. We call it “Creating a Culture of Hope,” which addresses veterans’ concerns as well as those of individuals who care for them. If you know caregivers who could benefit from this training, please let them know about it.
Objectives: Participants will learn: • How trauma affects veterans and caregivers • How to increase veteran self-efficacy and resiliency • How to create and use a support system • How to create a culture of hope
