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 has been 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).
