Grace College Hosts Training for Licensed Counselors to Work with Military Personnel and their Families
Grace College in collaboration with Star Behavioral Health Providers will be offering training for licensed counselors to work and interact with those serving in the military. Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) is a brand-new initiative designed through a partnership with the Indiana National Guard, the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University and the Indiana Family and Social Services Association. SBHP is a registry that was created to assist and help service members locate behavioral health professionals with special and key training to understand and deal with military issues.
Star Behavioral Health Providers offers licensed counselors the opportunity to enhance one’s skill set through learning more about the unique needs of the military population, access training specific to serving military patients, receive experience-based education that supports all branches of the military, and earn recognition as having received advanced training in behavioral health issues related to the military. Counselors receiving the training will then be listed on a comprehensive registry that will identify them as having completed this training in military issues, and serve as a valuable resource for service members, families, and referring professionals in and outside the military.
Grace College is pleased to host the Second Tier of training on September 7th and 8th in the Orthopaedic Capital Center. The training is free to participants, and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) may be earned at no cost, as well.
