CDP Presents: Exploring the Importance of Military Culture in Clinical Settings via Zoom

6 November 2024, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern

Description: U.S. military service members, veterans, and their families increasingly seek care from providers with limited knowledge of military culture. The 16-item core DSM-5 Cultural Formulation Interview (CFI) was designed to integrate cultural factors into assessment and treatment of mental disorders. Although the CFI was designed for use with all patients, it is unknown whether the CFI adequately assesses military culture. This presentation describes a methodology used to determine the need for specific CFI versions and the creation of a version for use with persons affiliated with the military. The presenters will offer an overview of the CFI-Military Version for Active-Duty Members, Veterans, and their Families.

Please note: While registration is slated to end once the webinar begins on 6 November 2024, space in this event is limited and registration will close once capacity has been reached, even if this is before the final registration date. 

Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.
