Our biennial conference this year is aimed at therapists; this invitation goes to all HGI therapists and interested parties.
The theme of the conference is ‘The military mind – the same but different’. The purpose is to explore and improve our approach to working with Armed Forces Veterans, Reservists and Family members, by adapting our general therapeutic skills to the context of the military experience.
