Working with LGBTQ Veterans - The Affirmative Couch

When working with sexual and gender minority veterans, it helps to understand military culture and the active-duty experience. For example, the experience of a lesbian serving prior to the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Don’t Pursue (repealed in 2011) in the US Army is vastly different from a trans female serving under the current Department of Defense Open Transgender Service Policy (2016) in the US Navy.

Course Description

Abstract:

When working with sexual and gender minority veterans, it helps to understand military culture and the active-duty experience. For example, the experience of a lesbian serving prior to the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Don’t Pursue (repealed in 2011) in the US Army is vastly different from a trans female serving under the current Department of Defense Open Transgender Service Policy (2016) in the US Navy.
Whether a veteran seeks mental health and/or medical care services at a Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facility or not, knowing that the VHA has made tremendous strides toward providing LGBT veterans with culturally competent care may increase the likelihood that the veteran will access their entitled benefits.

Learning Objectives:

After this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and address barriers to self-recognition as a veteran for LGBTQ service members
  • Explain differences between discharge types from active-duty service and their implications on mental health
  • Describe the psychological impact of DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Pursue) and its repeal on LGB and T service members
  • Discuss how the Transgender Open Service policy and Ban on Transgender Service members has influenced transgender and gender nonbinary service members and veterans

2 CEs
