Victory Noll Center is presenting the program "Care Providers for Veterans and Families Training" on Friday, March 15, offering skills training to those who interact with veterans and their unique needs.
The program is for social service providers, pastors, spouses, parents, family members or any care provider. Facilitator Paula J. Caplan, a clinical and research psychologist, says "The mere act of listening is often deeply healing."
Caplan will lead the workshop to provide a better understanding of the emotional, mental and physical needs of veterans.
“We are a war-illiterate nation," she says. "And our ignorance can be obvious when civilians say to veterans: ‘Thank you for your service.’ That simple phrase might seem like the best thing to say — it strikes us as easy, respectful and appreciative — but some veterans find the thank you disturbing, even if they realize that the speaker has good intentions.”
The program runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 15. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. at Victory Noll Center, located at 1900 W. Park Drive in Huntington. The cost is $50, and includes lunch. Please register by March 8.
