2013 Free Ethics: Echoes of War: the Combat Veteran in Criminal Court

Description:
This program will explore the history of PTSD and its ties to criminal behavior. It will then explore the ways in which America and its criminal justice system can learn lessons from history and avoid mistakes made with past generations of troubled returning war veterans. In many cases, a criminal charge can serve as an opportunity to intervene with a troubled veteran and help them get the help they need to get back on their feet and return to their communities as an asset, rather than a liability. The veterans receive the help they need and, at the same time, public safety is enhanced.

Registration policy: Attendance is mandatory to receive credit. You may purchase the materials for self-study credit.
