0 Comments | Posted

Interesting work coming out of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network focusing on military families. They have put together a series of lectures and podcasts focusing on military culture, available mental health services, the impact of deployment on military children and building community capacity.

Upcoming webinar on March 27 may be of interest to Network followers:

Demonstration of a Web-Enhanced Parenting Program for Military Families: After Deployment, Adaptive Parenting Tools/ADAPT

More from the NCTSN:

Top experts in each of the military’s service branches address issues of military culture, the impact of military and combat deployment on children and families, and the strengths and perspectives of those serving in the US Armed Services.

The Military Families Learning Community also features "Essentials for Those Who Care for Military Children and Families," a series of more than 15 Podcasts from top military experts discussing Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps cultures; available mental health services for Active Duty, Veteran, National Guard and Reserve; impact of deployment on military children and families; becoming a TRICARE provider; Military OneSource; and building community capacity to serve military families.

The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) and Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress (CSTS) partnered with the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) to develop this series to assist providers to be better prepared to care for military children and families.
