Military Families And Culture Specialization - MS in Human Services

Military Families and Culture

From combat-related injuries to addiction, members of the armed forces may face a multitude of challenges both on the front lines and when they return home. In this specialization, you’ll deepen your understanding of military culture; explore topics such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and vicarious trauma; and examine how frequent relocations, parent-child separation, and extensive deployments impact military families. You can also gain skills and strategies for helping active and former military personnel and their spouses and children cope effectively with hardships and improve their quality of life.
