CDP Presents: Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS): A Family Resilience Model online via Zoom
24 April, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: This 90-minute (75-minutes didactics, 15-minutes Q&A) webinar will describe the Families OverComing Under Stress (FOCUS), a brief, evidence-based, family intervention designed to enhance resilience and mitigate psychological distress in active duty military and Veteran families, children, and couples. FOCUS has been used extensively to support the active duty military population since 2008 and is a DoD Program of Record. We will examine the theoretical foundations of the model, its core components and its current application and use with the veteran population. Outcome data derived from its extensive use with military families will also be presented.
