Share Article

Taking care of the psychological needs of veterans, returnees, and their loved ones is a matter of growing importance, not to mention of critical need. Dr. Lorie T. DeCarvalho and Dr. Bret Moore will host a Webinar discussing post-deployment problems.

Those in the military are typically not products of royalty or privilege, but represent the heartland of a country. They are patriotic and loyal. They are selfless and brave. For this, they deserve to be cared for during their most vulnerable times

John Wiley & Sons, Inc. (NYSE: JWa and JWb) is excited to announce its first free mental health webinar focusing on the military on March 8, 2010, 2 p.m. EST as part of the newly launched Wiley Mental Health Webinar series. The webinar, titled Mental Health and the Military: Understanding and Treating Post-Deployment Problems and Reintegration Stress, will be hosted by expert panelists Dr Lorie T. DeCarvalho, who co-authored the books Clinician’s Guide to Treating Stress After War, Strategies for Managing Stress After War, and Dr. Bret Moore, author of The Veterans and Active Duty Military Psychotherapy Treatment Planner. Dr. DeCarvalho and Dr. Moore will go over the symptoms, discuss interventions, and provide a forum for clinicians to ask questions specific to treating those who have returned from war in the one hour webinar.

Peggy Alexander, Vice President & Publisher, Wiley, says, “Taking care of the psychological needs of veterans, returnees, and their loved ones is a matter of growing importance, not to mention of critical need. Treating this unique population requires a special sensitivity and skills training. We are honored to share the expertise of Drs. DeCarvalho and Moore.”

Dr. Lorie T. DeCarvalho, Ph.D., BCETS, FNCCM, adds, "It is my greatest honor to serve those who serve. The men and women of our Military selflessly sacrifice themselves every day to ensure our freedom, safety, and peace. They deserve every ounce of help that we can offer, to ease their burden and improve their lives when they come back home."

“Those in the military are typically not products of royalty or privilege, but represent the heartland of a country. They are patriotic and loyal. They are selfless and brave. For this, they deserve to be cared for during their most vulnerable times," said Dr. Bret Moore.
