They will be there for you—via phone, email or Skype—to answer any questions you may have and to help you master the course material. And, equally important, they will help you take the concepts you learn and apply them to resolve challenges commonly faced in clinical practice today.

Sheila McCabe’s work has focused on research and outreach with underserved veteran populations, such as Native American veterans and their families. Her primary goal is to facilitate alternative mental health healing modalities that are culturally sensitive and that may be outside the standard VA treatment protocol. In 2006, she established a non-profit organization and an online resource center for veterans and their families dealing with post-traumatic stress, as well as other issues of adjustment and healing.

Besides being busy with work, studies and family, she is also a dedicated musician. She enjoys playing guitar and mandolin in a variety of musical settings and professional venues.
