PsychArmor Institute: Role-based Military Culture Familiarization Modules

The PsychArmor Institute offers concise, free, role-based online training modules to empower civilians unfamiliar with military culture and processes to engage effectively with the military veterans they serve.  Each module is presented by a subject matter expert in their field, and is very professionally done.

If you're a civilian healthcare provider, educator, employer, or family member of a veteran, these short (15 - 30 min), informative presentations can teach you some of the key concepts about military life and veteran experience to help you in your engagement with veterans.

We recommend starting with the introductory course "The 15 Things Veterans Want You to Know", and see where your interests take you next!

Signing up for an account is optional, but free, and will track your progress as you complete modules based on your role, or just take à la carte courses in which you're interested.   

VITAL Program Webinars

The US Department of Veterans Affairs VITAL Office (Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership) typically conducts two free webinars per semester designed to educate college faculty and campus staff on issues relating to student veterans.

Recordings of past webinars will be posted here, along with any materials or handouts from each session.

  • November 2020: "Moral Injury Among Veterans".  Moral injury is the psychological distress a military veteran (or anyone!) may be struggling with after actively participating in (or failing to intervene to prevent) actions that conflict with their moral or religious beliefs.  Outcomes of this webinar include defining the psycho-social challenges associated with moral injury, and exploring evidence-based approaches to mitigating its effects among student veterans.

Presenter: Dr. Jason Nieuwsma, clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University Medical Center.  Dr. Nieuwsma also serves as the Associate Director for VA Mental Health and Chaplaincy, and is a respected expert on addressing moral injury in clinical practice.
