This book was released on 2008 with total page 303 pages. Book excerpt: Military families face many trials and challenges because of the difficult and unpredictable lives they lead. Many civilians, including mental health professionals, are not familiar with the unique lifestyle and stressors faced by these families. Dr. Lynn K. Hall has written a work that is the first of its kind, bringing together the writings and research in areas of importance in understanding military culture to provide new insight into the world of the military family. Counseling Military Families begins with an overview of military life before delving into specific chapters on the unique circumstances of career service personnel and their spouses and children. Topics discussed include issues of the male psyche that dominate military history and culture, the common concerns of the constant relocations and deployment of the military parent, and situations faced by children who grow up in a military family. The final section presents treatment models and targeted interventions tailored for use with military families, all of which are based on a framework of working with grief, loss, and change issues that have been used successfully in practice for more than 25 years. Hall has created not only an invaluable guidebook for mental health professionals working with military families, but also a timely and revealing look into a culture unknown to so many on the outside.

This book was released on 2012-04-27 with total page 416 pages. Book excerpt: The military imposes unique and often severe challenges to couples, which clinicians – particularly the growing numbers of civilian clinicians who see military couples – often struggle to address. These problems are only compounded by misunderstandings and misconceptions about what it means to be part of a specific branch of the military and part of the military as a whole. Handbook of Counseling Military Couples includes a clear, thorough introduction to military culture and to couple relationships in the military. But more than that, it provides readers with expert analyses of the special types of issues that come up for military couples and shows clinicians how to address them productively. In the chapters, readers will find the answers to questions such as how are military couples’ rights different from those of civilians? What attitudes and beliefs about relationships might military members bring to a session, and how are those different from those of civilians? What is the state of marriage and divorce in each of the branches and within the military in general? For a particular treatment modality, how does research in with military members compare to that of civilians? When should particular treatment strategies be used, and why – and how?

Book excerpt: School counselors often struggle to feel confident in delivering effective assistance to students due to a variety of reasons that currently do not have enough research or information developed. This leads to a struggle for counselors to adequately address tough and relevant issues.

This can lead to a lifetime of consequences for students.

These chapters, using the newest information available, will address these concerns and provide the best counseling work possible for underserved populations. While covering research on counseling for students with chronic illnesses, mixed-statuses, family issues, minority students, LGBTQ+ youth, and more, this book is ideal for school counselors, counseling educators, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students who are interested in school counseling and meeting the needs of diverse and important populations of students.

Free book TAddressing the Union of Counselor Education and Military Families. This book was released on 2015 with total page 259 pages. Book excerpt: This qualitative study explored how counselor educators infuse military culture in counseling curriculum as public policy suggests professional counselors will be called upon to provide services to military and veteran populations. The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011 authorized the Department of Defense (DoD) to publish standards allowing Licensed Professional Counselors to practice and bill TRICARE, or The Triple Option Benefit Plan for military families. However, TRICARE requires counselors providing services to military families to be graduates of CACREP accredited programs although CACREP standards do not currently address military culture. In order to effectively and efficiently help military populations to be successful in life, society, and education counselors must learn military culture and structure. Therefore, a gap exists between the standards of counselor preparation programs and the calling for more professional counselors to work with military families. As the need for more qualified providers increases, counselor education and accrediting agencies must respond appropriately. This study used a qualitative method to identify what counseling programs should be doing to best prepare all Counselors-in-Training to work with military families, especially deployed families, in military, mental health, and school settings. Additionally, this study sought to identify valuable resources, necessary experiences, and key concepts relevant to counseling military populations. Furthermore, this study identified barriers and ways to overcome barriers to include military culture in counseling curriculum.

Book excerpt: War-related separations challenge families in many ways. The worry and uncertainty associated with combat deployments provokes anxiety in family members left at home. Lengthy separations may challenge the personal, social, and economic coping resources of families at home. In this war, thanks to medical advances, many service members who previously would have died of their injuries are returning home to live long, although altered lives. As a result, families are facing the additional challenge of assisting service members who have experienced amputation, traumatic brain injury, and psychological wounds. These challenges are faced not only by service members in the active component of the armed forces, but also by service members in the National Guard and Reserves. In response, the Department of Defense has launched unprecedented efforts to support service members and families before, during and after deployment in all locations of the country as well as in remote locations. These support efforts are focused not only on medical care, but also mental health care and logistical support. Research about families and war tends to move forward in fits and starts associated with major conflicts, and there is currently an increasing flow of family research moving into the scientific domain. Military Families and the Aftermath of Deployment focuses heavily on the aftermath of deployment for families. It is the first compilation of such chapters released in relation to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and includes contributions from leading researchers from diverse disciplines and arenas, including universities, the Veterans Administration, and the Department of Defense, as well as international researchers from Canada, and Croatia, among others. This work will be of use to graduate students and researchers in family studies, social work, counseling, military science, psychology and sociology.

Free book TWhat School Counselors Can Do to Help Children of Military Families. This book was released on 2008 with total page pages. Book excerpt: With 1.2 million children coping with military parents serving their country, it is important for educators to recognize their needs and to understand how to support these children (Stroul, 2006). Since children spend so much time at school, the effects of parent deployment may surface within the school setting. Although a safe return of the loved one is usually the ultimate concern, in the meantime, children have to deal with not having contact with the loved one for extended periods of time, dealing with other family members' anxiety, changing routines, and taking on new responsibilities (Strow. 2006). It is important for educators to become familiar with the stages of military deployment which include pre-deployment, deployment. sustainment, reunion, and post-deployment (Stoul, 2006; Kennedy, 2007). While children typically show a range in emotions during deployment, there are common themes that research indicated children generally experience. Throughout these stages, counseling strategies and activities that school counselors can use to help children are identified. These include genuinely listening to the child's feelings, monitoring political views when around children, keeping in contact with the child's current guardian, and modifying educational plans for the child, if needed. As redeployment or relocation may also be a strong possibility for many families, children may have different responses to the repeat cycle of deployment stages. Relocation to live with a temporary custodial grandparent, aunt or uncle is also a common challenge children with military parents can face in times of war. Counselors can open lines of communication with the temporary guardian and assist with the transition to a new school while helping with unfamiliar school related issues.
