Military Loved Ones Workshop @ 6 p.m. on 4/26

American FlagHaving a loved one deployed overseas can be stressful and frightening, but the UCSB Counseling Center, The Trauma and Resiliency Recovery Center at the Hosford Clinic, and The Women's Center are joining forces and hoping to lessen the negative impact of deployments on students with information and support. The Military Loved Ones Workshop will help equip attendees for the pre-deployment, deployment, homecoming, and post-deployment of their military family member, romantic partner, and/or friend(s). The workshop is aimed at anyone who is experiencing deployment related stress and will focus on practical knowledge that may benefit students when a loved one deploys, including information on how to manage stress and overcome common challenges. There will also be opportunities to connect with fellow students on campus with similar experiences. The workshop will start at 6:00 p.m. and run through 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday April 26, 2011 at the Re-entry/Non-Traditional Student Resource Center in the Student Resource Building Room 1109, UCSB. There will be a free dinner provided to all attendees.
