Respiratory illness. Neurological effects. Cancer. Reproductive toxicity. These are only a few of the problems that your military and veteran clients might be dealing with after exposure to burn pits. And if you’ve been watching the news, you’re aware of the sense of betrayal they’re feeling. In this keynote recording, Michelle Flaum, EdD, LPCC-s will frame these experiences as medical trauma and tell you how you can help.
