MC201: Trauma Informed Interactions with Veterans

Trauma can affect everyone, and Veterans have increased exposure to the possibility of trauma due to combat and dangerous situations. This course defines trauma and how it presents itself, and is specifically designed to help volunteers interact with Veterans dealing with trauma that affects their health and/or ability to function. Safety, trust and transparency, empowerment, collaboration, and cultural issues (STECC) are the five main tips to help you have a positive interaction with Veterans. It’s important to remember that not all Veterans are affected by trauma, but to keep in mind that they could be.
