Video Description

A nice video that highlights Navy Medicine's program called PROJECT FOCUS[Families Overcoming Under Stress] that is a service initiated by the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in 2008 to help military families cope with the stress of frequent combat deployments. It teaches practical resiliency skills to service members and their families to better equip them to meet the challenges of deployment and reintegration. Part of this involves teaching the family to communicate and solve problems effectively, and to successfully set goals together and create a shared family story.


"What kind of love is this where she is miserable most of the time – crying about how he treats her, afraid of being criticized for what she did or didn't do?"
