With the drawdown of troops, our military families are making the transition into civilian communities. Many military families live far from base and could benefit from services and supports in your local community.
In California, our mission to strengthen families through evidence-based research and practice includes families affected by the challenges of military life, including deployment, injury, reintegration, and other life transitions.
We can engage in supportive relationships with military families to enhance resilience and build additional protective factors in their lives.
In partnership with FOCUS, a program of the UCLA Nathanson Family Resiliency Center, we present an introductory training that will help staff and community organizations:
• Increase knowledge of military family experiences
• Promote protective factors and build resiliency skills in the context of a parent’s current or previous military service
• Apply current best practices with military families using a culturally proficient approach
• Strengthen network connections to increase resources among local military and veteran providers and social service organizations
