Counseling Approaches in Working with Military Families

Dr. Smith has worked with over 300 veterans and military families over his professional career. A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, SSG Smith has been deployed to Afghanistan, Iraq and North Africa and served on humanitarian missions in Central and South America. Dr. Smith understands first hand of the impact deployment has on service members and their families. This training will help prepare current and future counselors to provide evidence-based, culturally competent services in the area of deployment and families. This training provides an overview of military culture including its history, organizational structure, core values, branches of the service, mission, and operations. In addition, it examines military deployment and the unique experiences that service members, their spouses, and their children face throughout the deployment cycle. The presentation incorporates research findings to discuss stressors and challenges associated with separations, reunions, and reintegration.
Learning Objectives

  • Identify military terminology and operations in order to facilitate effective treatment of military personnel.
  • Identify stressors faced by service members and their families before, during and after deployment.
  • Discuss the adaptive skills used by service members while in a combat zone that can be problematic, when applied at home, as well as effective strategies for facilitating healthy and positive reunions between returning service members and their families.
