Course information

Understanding military culture and the ways military service and deployments impact couples is critical when providing counseling to military-connected clients.

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) now offers webinars which are specially designed to support clinicians who provide couples counseling to this population. Each course is two-hours long and incorporates research, best clinical practices and interactive activities.  The courses are stand-alone and participants can take one or all three depending on their interest.

Description: This training provides military and civilian mental health providers with information about key elements of the assessment process when treating military and Veteran couples.  The components of an initial assessment will be reviewed with a specific focus on how aspects of military culture impact their relationships.  In addition, a variety of assessment tools will be presented including self-report measures and genograms.
