Pre-Deployment, Coping with Deployment and Reconnection Workshops are all offered by the American Red Cross at no charge. Whether your family is facing its first deployment or the next of many, the American Red Cross has developed workshops, information and support services to help you with the practical and emotional challenges.
Coping with Deployments Course– Spouses, parents, siblings and significant others learn skill-building techniques that help them respond to the challenges of the deployment cycle.
Pre-Deployment Preparedness for Family Members – Make sure your family is prepared with information they may need throughout the deployment.
Reconnection Workshops – Reconnection Workshops enhance the likelihood of positive reconnections among family members and successful re-engagement of service members and veterans in civilian life.
Coping with Deployments is available as an instructor-led course or an online course through the Red Cross Learning Center. There is no charge for the course. Call your local Red Cross to schedule this training for your Family Readiness Group (FRG) or to find out if a course is being taught in your area.
