This training is a combination of two modules from our Couples Webinar Series. The first half of the training provides active duty and civilian mental health providers with information about evidenced-based interventions that can be used with military and veteran couples. It begins with a review of the basic demographics of military couples and a discussion of normative stressors associated with military marriages as well as the impact of deployment on couples. Then three evidence-based couples interventions derived from Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Sue Johnson and other experts are presented with explanation of ways they can be used with military and veteran couples. This module concludes with an exploration of relationship strengths and resilience factors, with an emphasis on promoting resilience in military couples.
The second half of the training provides military and civilian behavioral health providers with information about the impact of deployments on relationships. Various theories will be presented which help explain the interpersonal processes surrounding each stage of the deployment cycle. Utilizing current research, clinical skills and knowledge focused on the reintegration period will be reviewed.
- Compare three evidence-based interventions clinicians can use when working with military-connected couples
- Explain three ways to promote strength and resilience in military-connected couples
- Explain normative relationship changes experienced during each stage of the deployment cycle for military couples.
- Use interpersonal process theories to inform clinical assessment and treatment of military couples impacted by deployment.
