Waldron College hosts outreach events

The Waldron College of Health and Human Services extended its classroom far from campus last week with events in Roanoke and Abingdon for alumni and other professionals.

"It was a privilege to host these intraprofessional events," Waldron College Dean Kenneth Cox said. "We're proud of our longstanding relationships with the Roanoke and Abingdon communities and look forward to deepening and strengthening them."

On April 3, 25 faculty, students and guests joined Assistant Professor Victoria Bierman '77,  B.S.N. '98, M.S.N. '04, for a professional development event titled, "The Impact of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): Assessment and Treatment" at the Roanoke Higher Education Center.  Bierman, a clinical practitioner with the St. Albans Psychiatric and Behavioral Health Outpatient Department, discussed the emotional and physiological responses to trauma, PTSD symptoms and treatments.

On April 4, despite an unexpected winter storm, 30 Waldron College guests joined David Boehm, warden of Adult Development and Housing at the Greenville Correctional Center in Greensville, in Abingdon for a presentation titled "The Current Regulation of Clinical Social Work Practice." Boehm is a licensed clinical social worker with more than 30 years of advanced clinical and administrative practice.

"The fields in which our guests practice are diverse, and the interdisciplinary sharing and discussions that our guests enjoyed were a pleasure," Cox said.
