Veterans, families, and communities struggle with the aftereffects of serving in the military. Too often suffered in silence, psychological trauma experienced by our men and women in uniform brings the hardship home. By embracing honest discussion and strong networks of support, winning the battle against these harrowing challenges is possible. Our Hidden Wounds of War Conference builds awareness about treatments and resources.

This year’s keynoter is Dr. Jeremy Schumm, Associate Professor at Wright State University. Dr. Schumm is a national master trainer in behavioral couple therapy for substance misuse disorders as well as a master trainer for cognitive-behavioral conjoint therapy for PTSD. The Tenth Annual Hidden Wounds of War Conference is hosted by the Hauenstein Center in partnership with Grand Valley State University, the West Michigan Veterans Coalition, the Veterans Community Action Teams, myVA, and the Soul Repair Center.
