They shouldn’t be homeless and hungry, we should take care of them. They should be given therapy if they need it, a job, an education. If they are helping us stay free, we should help them live well. In conclusion, I think soldiers’ and their families’ stories should be told and they should be helped if they’re struggling.
PTSD can be considered a major life altering mental disorder. Once I obtain my Masters in Social Work, I would like to pursue a career in Counseling Veterans with PTSD. My second career goal, is to work with individuals
In addition, “upon mobilization, the lives of U.S. Army Reserve soldiers are disrupted because they are pulled from their families and civilian careers to deploy. After returning home, they are no longer surrounded by comrades on a daily basis who share similar deployment experiences” (“Impact of Deployment”). This
A veteran’s war experience is very different for each and every person. The things that they see and experience is very different than our society will ever understand. Veterans may return and be diagnosed with PTSD, depression, some psychological disorder etc. This not only effects the veteran but also the family. The family may not have that special connection that they had before and can’t get through to him or her.
But that brings up memories, good and bad. Some soldiers say that they miss war. They don’t have a reason in civilian life. That is the main component to this disorder. They don’t feel like they deserve to live over the people who died in combat.
The dynamic system theory was able to show that he may be having difficulty adjusting to the new situations, such as living with a different person at a new home, which is resulting in distress and misconduct. With this information, it is clear that Charlie requires support in becoming accustomed to the changes occurring in his suprasystem, specifically his family. On the other hand, the limitation of the dynamic system theory is the fact that it is incapable of locating the change that had the most influence. For example, having more contact with his aunt, Eleanor, may have had little to no influence since he has known her since birth, and she would be his primary caregiver when Eloise was incapable of giving Charlie the proper attention. However, it is possible that Eleanor has different house rules and expectations that Charlie is not accustomed to.
Veterans today face many challenges still from when they fought in the war. After they have served in the military they go home to their families. For a while though the family is not used to that mom or dad back and, for the kids it is weird because they haven 't been around that parent and they don 't really talk to that parent. Veterans also get flash backs from war also so they are sometimes get scared or they get really weird.
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
Social Work 640 and My Practice My Ability to Work with Military Families and Children I believe that working with military families is more difficult than working with the military member or veteran, alone. I feel that I can identify with my clients’ veteran status and shared experiences (identification and countertransference); however, as I spent a large portion of time away from my family, I would probably feel guilt stemming from my own experiences of leaving behind my family if I were to work with military spouses and children. Also, another phenomena germane to military families that would be difficult for me to reconcile, is the heightened impact that military issues cause for military children.
Children can demonstrate their parents what they have been doing in their nursery or school. It is critical as children are eager to hotshot their work and accomplishments and they need their parents to be pleased with them as well. Becoming acquainted with the parents is crucial in early years setting. Workers should be inviting and comprehend the significance of parents so that streets of correspondence are set

“Veteran poverty should be unimaginable, but sadly, it is an unpleasant fact today for some veterans” (“The Ugly Face of Veteran Poverty in the United States”). Many homeless veterans are not getting the support they need. People need to be witness to this injustice and stand up for it. “The kind of hope we need is an orientation of the spirit a willingness to position ourselves sometime, someway, someplace in hopeless spaces and be a witness and say something” (Stevenson). Veterans are living in horrible conditions after serving in the military because the government is not providing enough support for veterans.
Another disadvantage for American troops was the draft. 25% of total forces in-country were draftees or often referred to as ‘cherries’. (P17) Draftees accounted for 30% of combat deaths in Vietnam, and 61% of men killed were 21 or younger. (P17) These draftees were young, naive, and inexperienced in battle, along with the fact that they were forced to be there, raised questions about their effort and loyalty to the cause. A draftee, Eddy L. Stevenson, describes the nature of his experiences; “Can you imagine a tired, dirty, scared infantry company made up of twenty-year old draftees armed to the teeth and in a bad mood?”
SSGT Joseph White came into the local VA Community based clinic for medical care. When he was discussing his situation at home, the medical doctor found that it would beneficial that the social worker talk with SSGT White. The social worker obtained an appropriate assessment to assist with finding services that would be available to him through the VA and/or local community organizations for his symptoms and treatment options. When establishing a relationship with a potential client, building and keeping a rapport with the individual is key to a positive working relationship. The individual needs to feel that they are respected, understood, and listened to when the relationship begins.
In world war I and II, returning soldiers were recognized as heroes. The war in Vietnam completely changed this perspective as returning soldiers were frowned upon and strongly criticized. Anti war protests and the media turned the American people against returning soldiers. Veterans began committing suicide when they Witnessed first hand that their own country didn't care for or support them. Soldiers and veterans suffer immensely from mental disorders resulting from the horrors they've witnessed in war.
