The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) hosts monthly webinars to provide information and facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to psychological health and traumatic brain injury. The webinars are open to the public, and many provide continuing education.
Improving Violence Risk Assessment Among Service Members and Veterans
June 27, 2013, 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
Research has suggested that service members and veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq are at risk of developing psychological health disorders, such as posttraumatic stress disorder, depression and substance abuse. These disorders have been linked to increased risk of violence among veterans of previous wars. Patients with psychological health disorders are likely to use health care services more frequently than patients without psychological health disorders. Health care providers have a unique opportunity to identify, treat and refer patients in need of mental health services, improving the ability to detect those at highest risk of committing violence.
This webinar will:
- Conceptualize the process of violence risk assessment in military veterans
- Review up-to-date scientific literature on post-deployment aggression
- Integrate new data on aggression in veterans from a national sample
- Discuss how rehabilitation can help reduce aggression in veterans

Technical Platform: In an effort to support all guests whose network security settings may limit access to various internet sites, we will simultaneously host webinars via two technical platforms. The primary site is via Adobe Connect, and Defense Connect Online (DCO) is the optional site. If your network security settings do not allow access to Adobe Connect, use another network or device to access the registration page. Once registered, you may use Adobe Connect or Defense Connect Online to attend the webinar. You need only to sign on to either of the sites to fully participate in the webinar.
