Listening to Veterans Day
“Listening to veterans” was the theme of a training Family Service of Rhode Island and Psychological Centers sponsored Friday, May 24, in the State Room at the State House.
The three hour training was kicked off by a speaking program that included Lt. Governor Elizabeth H. Roberts; Major General Kevin R. McBride, the Adjutant General of Rhode Island (in photo); Steven M. Costantino, the Secretary of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services; and Family Service of RI CEO Margaret Holland McDuff.
The Lt. Governor presented a proclamation on behalf of Governor Lincoln D. Chafee declaring May 24, 2013 "Listening to Veterans Day in Rhode Island."
The training, entitled “The Welcome Johnny and Jane Home Project, Helping Veterans Heal in Non-pathologizing, Low-risk Ways,” was led by Paula Caplan, Ph.D. (in photo), a clinical and research psychologist and associate at Harvard University's DuBois Institute.
