Narratives of Resilience: Stories of Women Veterans

Thursday, June 29, 6:30 p.m.—Sié Complex, 5th Floor
The military/civilian divide in U.S. culture can be attributed to an absence of understanding between those who have had military experiences and those who have not, resulting in a lack of being able to relate and connect. Storytelling is a tool that helps to bridge this gap of (mis)understanding by fostering empathy and compassion between the teller and listener. Storytelling also promotes growth as the tellers are often led to process and make meaning through narrating their stories. As a minority group within the U.S. military, women service members and veterans have unique experiences and stories. At the Sturm Specialty in Military Psychology summer event, we are thrilled to foster and facilitate a storytelling panel of women U.S. military and veterans about their military experiences, reintegration transitions and paths of resilience. A reception will be held prior to the event, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Free and open to the public. Register
