On May 27, San Fernando-based West Valley Counseling Center is teaming up with Star Behavioral Health Providers (SBHP) to sponsor SBHP’s training breakfast. The breakfast will precede three levels of training sessions that are geared toward training behavioral health providers in military culture so these professionals may be best equipped to treat the needs of service members and their families.
SBHP provides three tiers of training that focus on: 1) the introduction to military culture; 2) the education about specific challenges associated with military service; 3) the clinical skills necessary to address some behavioral issues that service members, veterans, and their families face. With this training and awareness, these licensed health clinicians more thoroughly understand evidence-based treatments for PTSD, insomnia, suicidal ideation, chronic pain, and depression.
West Valley Counseling Center (WVCC)—a non-profit in Tarzana, CA—provides therapy for individuals, couples, and families. West Valley Counseling Center believes in and supports SBHP’s mission and is excited to reach out to SBHP and get involved in helping military members and their families. Several of West Valley Counseling Center’s staff will be partaking in SBHP’s training sessions, which are centered on military sensitivity. WVCC’s therapists work with trauma survivors, whether it be inner family trauma, PTSD, or trauma recovery.
WVCC has expertise in the area of trauma recovery and works through issues to help ease emotional burdens and manage feelings of depression, stress, isolation, loneliness, and anger. WVCC’s services are provided by licensed mental health professionals who work with clients’ issues and concerns through positive support and care.
