Preparing for war casualties: Therapy considerations
Journal of Teaching in Social Work
In the still early aftermath of the Persian Gulf War and the Somalia expedition, the need for stalled practitioners cannot be ignored. In the years ahead, civilian mental health professionals will encounter war-related stress in clients who fought in both long ago and more recent wars. This article contends that today’s training for social workers with its here-and-now, present-oriented focus is inadequate to the task of dealing with the anguish of emotional trauma. Vietnam veteran studies provide us with a basis for infusion of relevant content into the social work practice curriculum. © 1994 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
