PTSD/MTBI Chain Teaching Program

An online video file of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder/Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (PTSD/MTBI) Chain Teaching Program is being made available to Family Readiness Group (FRG) Leaders. This version is tailored for Unit leaders to present at FRG meetings to help familiarize Family Members with signs and symptoms of PTSD/MTBI, and for further use by Family Readiness Groups to educate and inform spouses and Family Members.

Families are key: they are often the first ones to detect a change in the behavior of their Soldier. This video will help them identify symptoms and tell them where they can go to seek help.

The Battle Book III Now Available!

From the Commandant, United States Army War College:

Today's military serves a Nation at War. The Battle Book III: A Guide for Spouses in Leadership Roles offers a wealth of information and resources that address the tough requirements of our times.

This handbook represents the caring work of spouses of students of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) Class of 2005 and was recently updated by the USAWC student spouses of the Class of 2007.

It is designed to help Families learn about the military and better understand the Soldier's mission. The Soldier, the spouse, and the Family work together as a team. This guidebook provides a well researched, well written, and well organized view to move that team forward.

Military Spouses have always been a cornerstone of support for Soldiers and their Families. Family readiness for Soldiers and their Families depends on education and support programs that promote self reliance and enhances individual and Family wellbeing.

We are confident this book will be a useful and valued resource for you in addressing the many challenges the face today's military leaders, our Soldiers, and their Families.

Spouse Battlemind Training

Training is available to help you and your family transition to and from deployment.  This training has been developed to be administered to Military Spouses during pre-deployment preperations and post-deployment reintegration.
