Since 9/11, service members have faced multiple deployments to conflict zones around the world. Transitioning back home can be hard, and many service members and veterans have experienced challenges readjusting into life with their families, their jobs and their communities. This Red Cross program aims help ease that transition.
Reconnection Workshops, which are free and confidential, focus on individual and small group discussion that enhances the likelihood of positive reconnections among family members and others in the community, and the successful re-engagement of service members and veterans in civilian life.
Workshops assist those impacted by a military deployment and bridge all branches of the Armed Forces. We invite Reserve, National Guard, active duty service members, veterans and their families to participate.
Adult participants can choose from five different topics, and children/teens can choose from two different topics. Sessions and materials focus on learning useful skills, developing effective coping mechanisms, and where to find resources.
