MIAMI, Fla., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- St. Thomas University's (www.stu.edu) Biscayne College will host a panel and workshop, March 22, 2013, offering veterans and their families an opportunity to connect with local resources during a conference: "Listening with Love: The Challenge of Reintegration for Veterans and Their Families."
Throughout the nation, the public hasbeen hearing about the difficulties veterans and families have been experiencing as they adjust to civilian life. Many have been deployed several times; others are having difficulty finding work; and there is a high number of suicides among vets. The challenges are numerous. To that end, faculty experts from Biscayne College's Counseling Graduate Program are reaching out and inviting veterans, reservists, religious leaders, school personnel, national guardsmen, their families, and the professionals who care for them. Expert panelists from St. Thomas include Dr. Judith Bachay (Guidance & Counseling) and Dr. Barbara Buzzi (Marriage & Family Therapy).
Special guest speaker is Dr. Jim Whitworth, Ph.D., retired from the Air Force after 21 years of providing mental health service to military personnel both in the U.S. and in Iraq. Having experienced his own reintegration, he is presently a professor at St. Leo University and maintains a private practice.
The event – free of charge – will be held in the Evelyn and George Goldbloom Convocation Hall, 16401 NW 37 Avenue in Miami Gardens, 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. For additional information please contact Cynthia Rose McIntyre, 305.628-6641, CRose-McIntyre@stu.edu, and for other University schools and programs contact Chief Marketing Officer Marivi Prado, email@example.com, 305.474 6880.
