A portion of those returning veterans will find themselves involved in the justice system.

6 Conference Schedule Thursday, May 15, :45am 9:00am 9:00am 10:00am 10:00am 10:15am 10:15am 11:45am 11:45am 1:00pm 1:00PM 2:30pm 2:30PM 3:30pm 3:30pm Welcome Plenary III - Major General Tony Cucolo Issues of Reintegration Break Concurrent Session II Lunch and Book Signing Concurrent Session III Plenary IV David Finkel Thank You For Your Service Evaluations, Continuing Education Validation and Adjournment 10:15-11:45am T04 - Substance Abuse in OEF/OIF Era Veterans Clare Seletsky, MA, Clinical Coordinator - First Responder Addiction Treatment Program, Livengrin Foundation Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom era veterans face unique challenges in reintegration following deployments. Exposure to combat trauma, multiple deployments and lack of mental health/addiction providers are some of the reasons that chemical dependency and abuse in OIF and OEF veterans is staggering. SAMHSA estimates that 20% of returning veterans are abusing or dependent on alcohol or drugs. This selfreport based figure is likely much lower than reality for these veterans. This workshop will explore barriers to treatment, military policy on drug and alcohol use, as well as tips for providers working with recent veterans with substance use disorders. T05 - Breaking Free: The Power of Choice: Veterans Edition Jean Coyne, MSEd, Program Supervisor, Pittsburgh Mercy Health System Kacie McGregor, LSW, MSW, Prevention Specialist, Pittsburgh Mercy Health System Stephen Schott, BA Prevention/Intervention Specialist, Pittsburgh Mercy Health System, Pittsburgh, PA Breaking Free: The Power of Choice is a therapeutic group designed for the forensic and other at-risk populations. It is essential to tailor group experiences and facilitators to meet the needs of the veteran population. Finding a professional facilitator who has military experience in order to provide culturally-competent services is essential. This leader can better meet veterans where they are and help them to consider how they, as veterans, have different needs and may develop belief systems differently due to their military experiences. Participants will learn how the Cognitive Self-Change model is utilized in group to challenge veterans beliefs and support them developing new, healthy thinking. Page 6

7 Conference Schedule Thursday, May 15, :15-11:45am continued T06 - CIT for Veterans Michael Brown, Veterans Jail Diversion Coordinator, Specialized Clinical and Criminal Justice Unit, Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disability Services, Philadelphia, PA Jeff Hoerger, LPC, Team Leader, Bucks County Vet Center Lawrence Davidson, MSW Candidate, West Chester University CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) programs are local initiatives designed to improve the way law enforcement and the community respond to people experiencing mental health crises. A special module focused on the needs of veterans has been developed in Pennsylvania. Frequently, police are the first responders when veterans are in crisis or display symptoms of mental illness which may be disruptive to the public. This session will describe some of the unique considerations that need to be employed when working with veterans. 1:00 2:30pm T07 - York County Veteran Treatment Court (VTC) - Trials, Errors and New Initiatives Craig Trebilcock, JD, Court of Common Pleas Julie Bergstresser, MSW, Veterans Justice Outreach Coordinator, Lebanon VA Medical Center Andrew Frantz, Treatment Court Administrator Barre Shepp, Mentor Coordinator for veterans Treatment Court Heather Lape, Veterans Treatment Court Probation Officer, York, PA The York County Veterans Treatment Court has partnered with the Magisterial District Courts to help identify and serve veterans in need, prior to penetrating into the justice system. Many summary level offenses are the tip of the iceberg when dealing with veterans returning back into our communities. Courthouse Facility Dogs and Mentors are most important. Mentors serve as a coach, guide, role model and support in a vet-to-vet relationship. The team has partnered with physicians to reduce unnecessary opiate prescriptions and demonstrates a unique role with law enforcement. T08 - The PA Department of Corrections: Veteran Initiatives Christopher E. Reed, MBA, Veterans Coordinator, PA DOC Otis Nash, Veteran Service Unit Project Manager Krista Griffith, PA Board of Probation and Parole The PA Department of Corrections has recognized the numbers of veterans residing within the institutions. Several forward-thinking initiatives have been developed to address the veteran population and to assist veterans for reentry to society. This session will describe the Veterans Service Units (VSUs) as well as highlight the innovative steps taken to streamline reentry. Additionally, the presenters will describe the Graterford s dog training program entitled A New Leash on Life which trains service dogs for veterans with PTSD. Page 7
