UCLA NFRC Collaborates on New Training Initiative

The UCLA Nathanson Family Resilience Center is excited to share a new and free educational opportunity: Star Behavioral Health Providers, a training program for civilian mental health providers intended to make them better able to understand, assess, and counsel members of the Military. Star Behavioral Health Providers is a collaborative effort of UCLA, the California National Guard, Purdue University’s Military Family Research Institute, and the Center for Deployment Psychology.

Star Behavioral Health Providers is a tier-based continuing education program offering free CEUs to clinical professionals through up-to-date workshops focused on the unique needs of the Military community. As providers progress through three tiers of training, they are listed on an online registry of behavioral health professionals with specialized training in understanding and treating Military Service Members and their families.

The first local training will be held in Los Alamitos (near Long Beach) on Tuesday, February 25th.  Its goal is to enhance clinical competence through increasing understanding of Military culture, terminology, and the impact of the deployment cycle on Service Members and their families.
