FOCUS Family Resilience Training is now available for active duty couples and families all over the world through TeleFOCUS. TeleFOCUS is a brief interactive program that strengthens family and couple relationships. Sessions include a variety of activities and exercises for children, adults, and the entire family. It uses a secure video chat program to deliver, in the convenience of a family’s home, the same program that over 12,000 military families and couples have enjoyed. Families only need an internet-connected computer with a camera. TeleFOCUS is flexible and adapts to meet each family’s goals. Families and couples do not have to be in the middle of a challenging time to benefit from FOCUS. In fact, most families report that FOCUS was a great way to build on their strengths, work together as a team, and grow even closer. TeleFOCUS teaches families skills that support resilience. These skills include communication, goal setting, managing trauma and stress, and problem solving.
TeleFOCUS is open to all active duty families and couples, including activated Reserve and Guard families. Recovering warrior families and couples who are dealing with visible or invisible injuries—PTSD, TBI, depression, etc. —are encouraged to participate. Training services are free, but internet and data rates may apply depending on your service provider.
