Description

Although military families are extremely resilient, unique issues such as deployment, relocation, and injury can challenge the family system. This workshop will provide an overview of military stressors that can impact a family system as well as the common reactions that children and adolescents may display. Coming from a strength-based perspective, participants will explore how to build treatment plans around key coping skills and provide therapeutic interventions that are tailored to this unique population. 

 

Target Audience: For behavioral health/healthcare providers who treat military personnel, veterans, and their families.

 

Instructional Level: Introductory

Learning Objectives:

Attendees will be able to:

  • Differentiate key characteristics of the population of military children, and aspects of parental military service that may promote vs. protect against risks for children.    

  • Evaluate mediators of the impact of parental deployments on children.  

  • Analyze strengths and limitations of recent evidence related to assessing the impact of parental deployments on children.  

  • Construct a perspective regarding strategies that may fruitfully be used to promote strength and resilience in military families.
