"This excellent book will be highly useful for providers and anyone interested in helping military families reconnect and become more resilient in the setting of the enormous stress these families face on a daily basis. Using a clear format that avoids jargon, providers and families can work through the eight practical steps that focus on reconnecting the family and improving resiliency. The book includes highly useful "Making It Real" and "Taking Action" exercises that families can readily use and practice as they work through these chapters. This excellent book will surely become core material for anyone interested in working with military families." -Bradford Felker, MD, Director Deployment Health Service and Mental Health Primary Care Service Department of Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System Commander, United States Reserves "Military families are faced with incredible challenges such as deployment separation, constant relocation, and caring for loved ones with physical and psychological injuries. Unfortunately, due to the necessary attention paid to service members, families are often unintentionally overlooked. Drs. DeCarvalho and Whealin do an excellent job detailing the various challenges faced by military families and provide practical and helpful tips for increasing their resiliency in the face of adversity." -Bret A. Moore, Psy.D., ABPP "Healing Stress in Military Families: Eight Steps to Wellness is a timely, practical publication that recognizes and addresses the impact of traumatic stress on countless "hidden victims," our military families. The focus on empowerment and goal-directedness-versus illness, disorder and dysfunction is so needed today." -Mark D. Lerner, Ph.D., President, Institute for Traumatic Stress
