"Caring for Military Family: What We All Should Know About Military Culture and the Stress of Deployment"

The AUSB PsyD program is hosting a live webcast on “Caring for Military Family: What We All Should Know About Military Culture and the Stress of Deployment” on Friday May 11, 9-11:30am., AUSB Campus, Community Hall.

This workshop provides an overview of military culture including its history, organizational structure, core values, branches of the service, mission and operations. We will also examine military deployment and the unique experiences that Service members and their spouses and children face throughout the deployment cycle. Research findings will be incorporated. Participant questions and interaction is invited.

APA’s Education Directorate is pleased to offer this free webcast. This effort is part of APA’s partnership with the White House Joining Forces Initiative headed by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, which seeks to activate society to support our service members and their families. Please take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from David Riggs, PhD, Executive Director of the Center for Deployment Psychology, a nationally recognized authority in this area.

The webcast will be followed by a discussion with Colonel (Retired) Patti Tackett, AUSB PsyD graduate (2011). Free and open to the public, we welcome anyone who is interested in this topic to join us for this special event. Contact Stephanie Holland, sholland@antioch.edu, if you have any questions about this event.

  1. Is there a limit to people wanting to attend? Is there anything that I should bring or prep for prior to coming to the webcast?

    1. Hi Celeste,
      Thanks for your comment. There is limited seating and I will see you are added to the list. You do not need to bring anything for the presentation, just plan to be part of the conversations.

  3. I am unable to attend the meeting but am interested in this presentation. My husband is in the military and currently deployed to Afghanistan and I am an MFT Intern that would love to work with veterans and/or family members. I am extremely interested but work during the day.

    Will this webinar be recorded and available for me to listen to? I assumed it would be online b/c it is being advertised as a webinar. Is there a way to call in and listen to the discussion live?

    1. Hi Jami,
      Sorry you will not be able to attend. We hope to receive approval from the host (APA) to be able to present a recorded version of webinar at another time. We will announce if we are able to have additional viewings.
