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 of the four courses is two-hours long and will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. EASTERN, each Tuesday in February. Each module incorporates research, best clinical practices and interactive activities. The courses are stand-alone and participants can take one or all four depending on their interest. Individual courses are $18 each or participants can register for all four courses at a discounted rate of $60 by clicking here.
Description: This training provides active duty and civilian mental health providers with an overview of Dr. Douglas Snyders' three-stage model for treating infidelity. The training begins by defining behaviors that constitute an affair and then explores issues which may be specific to military couples. Next, the three-stage model is introduced along with tasks to be accomplished during therapy and treatment goals for each stage.
