Dr. Catherine Mogil, the Director of Training and Intervention Development at the Nathanson Family Resilience Center, recently attended the Supporting the Child to Honor the Family symposium held in Washington, D.C. Clinicians, providers, researchers, and military families attended the first-ever symposium sponsored by the nonprofit Our Military Kids. The symposium included a panel of family members of wounded warriors who spoke about the impact that combat injuries, both physical and invisible, had on their families, and how these injuries changed family relationships. Additionally, expert speakers shared their relevant clinical knowledge. Together, these professionals and families discussed the challenges that children of wounded warriors face. Symposium attendees collaborated and shared ideas about how to improve support for military children and foster the inherent resilience of military families.
