The Counseling and Human Relations Center will be offering a War Veterans Group to provide PSU students (and possibly some non-students)
who are U.S. military veterans of war an opportunity to address issues of coping, stress management, and the aftereffects of their combat
and/or non-combat war experiences with other veterans in a safe, confidential, and supportive environment.
The goals of the group include the increased ability to cope effectively with the stress resulting from military/war experience
and from readjustment to civilian life; development/strengthening of healthy stress management tools; and mutual support in an
environment of peers who have shared war experiences.
Group facilitators will be Robert Hlasny, Ph.D., and Michael Fischler, Ed.D.
The support group will start as soon as there are enough members. The meeting time will be determined after considering members’ scheduling needs.
If you know students who are war veterans, would you please encourage them to call the Counseling and Human Relations Center at 535-2461 to
schedule an intake assessment to determine if this group might be right for them.
