Professor Jeff Addicott NECA Professional Development Institute Keynote Speaker:
Counseling Needs Resulting from the War on Terror

Dr. Jeffrey Addicott lectures about the law of war and human rights at Saint Mary's University in San Antonio and will present the keynote address for the 2018 Professional Development Institute, Thursday, April 26 in Atlanta. He founded the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's, which studies legal and policy issues in relation to terrorism. He also served in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps for 20 years.

Addicott travels around the country and internationally--his academic mission is to discuss political and economic/employment issues to the public. One of the major topics he will discuss with NECA is the war on radical Islam, which he said is a concern when addressing terrorism. This is a concern which many counselors are dealing with, where tragic crises have happened across our country. Fear of potential terrorist attacks and PTSD symptoms from prior attacks impact mental health and employability for our clients across all sectors. NECA leadership believes all counselors need to be better informed in working with clients across all specialties in addressing the effects of terrorism on our culture and clientele.

Join NECA leadership to learn more about how the U.S. can be better protected from terrorism through education, readiness, and mutual support. To read more about Addicott's work, you may wish to check out his book, "Radical Islam Why," which is available on Amazon (2017).
