In honor of the National Social Work Month, Carl R. Darnall’s Department of Behavior Health is hosting a professional development workshop March 24 for all Fort Hood and Central Texas behavior health providers.

This year’s theme “Forging Solutions Out of Challenges” will focus on some of the most critical challenges facing social workers who serve the military population such as: ethics and the social work practice, the social work advantage when treating combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the moral injury aspect in combat veterans diagnosed with PTSD.

Attendees can earn six continuing education units during the all-day event. Guest speaker for the event is Col. Mark Thompson, CRDAMC commander.

The event, which will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., will be held at the Community Events and Bingo Center, Building 50012, Clear Creek Road. Lunch will be provided. Registration deadline is March 18.
