SOCW 662 - Military Families: Transition and Well-being


3 Credits
This course prepares community-based clinical social workers to assess and respond to the unique needs of military families through the cycle of pre-deployment, deployment and post-deployment reintegration. Military families historically have demonstrated remarkable resilience, resourcefulness and adaptability. In recent years, however, the cumulative impact of multiple combat deployments and the “hidden wounds” of war have posed significant health and mental health challenges to children and adults within military families. The toll on family members may manifest in symptoms of anxiety, depression, secondary post-traumatic stress, as well as higher rates of suicide and domestic violence. Particular attention is paid to the development of evidence-informed clinical interventions in the context of schools, child-serving agencies, and community health and mental health programs.
