PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
This annual multi-disciplinary event brings the leading mental health professionals and chaplains in the military together to share their clinical expertise dealing with combat stress, the threat of terrorism, PTSD, and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF).

This combat stress conference is the longest running and one of the best of it’s kind in the world. Throughout the years, this seven-day conference has trained both military and civilian staff to provide services to military personnel suffering from the various combat stress problems as well as civilian disaster victims. The focus, as you can see from the attached brochure, is not only combat stress issues, but also other issues like family support. A recent professional medical journal estimated that 400,000 military personnel would be in need of mental health services by 2008. As you can see—now more than ever—there is a need for this conference to continue to train both civilian and military staff to address this present and continuing need.

Some highlights of the 2007 conference include a Special Guest Presentation by Duane “Dewey” R. Clarridge—the former head of the CIA’s Counter-Terrorism Center and the Author of A Spy For All Seasons: My Life In The CIA...plus other invited guests, statesman and stateswomen. And, this year we have added “A Show For Family Support” Variety Show on Saturday Night as well as a Living Military History From Rome to Current Era: How Combat Stress And Family Support Was Addressed. The weekend conference features 18 plenary sessions and during the week you can choose from seven one-day courses and five two-day program. And, if you're a licensed medical or mental health professional, you can earn up to 8 hours of continuing education each day.
