With overseas deployment scaling down in recent years, helping professionals need practical tools for working with servicemen and women returning from deployment. Caring for the Military, with its case studies and clinical discussions, is indispensable for social workers and other helping professionals working with these populations. Leading experts contribute chapters on the challenges faced by reintegrating members of the military, including returning to a family, entering the workforce, and caring for those with PTSD, TBI, and moral injury. This text also features unique chapters on telemental health, multidisciplinary settings, and caregiver resiliency.
