Veteran and U.S. Armed Forces Service History and Interest Demographics of Professional Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists
Hello fellow Professional Counselors!
I hope everyone is safe and healthy. As many of you know, independently licensed Professional Counselors are not able to serve as uniformed behavioral science officers in the U.S. Armed Forces. Additionally, there are many barriers to serving in other capacities due to our profession not being recognized enough. I’m currently in the data collection phase of a study with the focus of exploring if there is any interest to work either in uniform (i.e., as a behavioral science officer in the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, or U.S. Navy) or as a civilian (contractor or employee) with any of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, Department of Defense, and/or the Department of Veterans Affairs. Additionally, the study will explore any U.S. Armed Forces service history or past work as a civilian with the Department of Veterans Affairs or any of the branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. Please consider participating in this study, which should take no more than 10 to 20 minutes. This study has been reviewed and approved by the Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) COCE IRB. If you wish to find out more about the COCE IRB, contact email@example.com.
