Women Veterans - Their Needs and "iRest"
By: Amanda Mayle, PsyD, HSPP

The Veteran population does not look anything like what it did twenty years ago, or even ten years ago. Women make up a growing number of Veterans, so VA and the private sector must expand its services and resources in kind. A recent report concluded VA has made progress to close the gap of care that has existed between male and female Veterans for far too long. New clinics, better training, and an emphasis on primary care have led to better rates of examinations and service.

Over the past two decades, VHA has rolled out numerous initiatives designed to improve access and quality of care for women Veterans. Along with clinical advances, VHA women’s health research has accelerated, providing an evidence base that further sharpens the focus on women Veterans.

This presentation will focus on descriptions of the unique issues woman veterans face while in service and when they come out of service.  Ways of providing the best health care services to women veterans, including comprehensive primary care as well as specialty care such as reproductive services, rehabilitation, mental health, and treatment of military sexual trauma will be discussed.

Special focus will be placed upon mental health and issues such as depression, mood, and anxiety disorders; intimate partner and domestic violence; sexual trauma; parenting and anger management; marital, caregiver, or family-related stress; and post-deployment adjustment or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Presentation will also include an introduction to the iRest Yoga
Nidra program, which is an evidence based meditation program that is being rolled out in the VA that addresses a multitude of symptoms.  iRest was developed within the military setting by Dr. Richard Miller with most research being conducted at Walter Reed Hospital.  Foundation of the program will be discussed and scientific basis behind the program.


By completing the program, participants will able to:

1.   Recognize and explain the unique issues that women veteran's face in service and when they leave service.

2.   Summarize the various mental health issues that women veterans may face and recognize how they may be expressed in gender specific ways to women veterans.

3.   Apply empirically based therapy techniques that research has shown are most effective for women veterans.

4.   Describe the iRest program, foundation and scientific basis on an introductory level.
