The number of families impacted by military service continues to increase. Therapists need to be equipped to understand the unique challenges of military families and military culture. Northcentral University is one of the only schools offering a specialization in Therapy with Military Families. Issues that impact service members and their families are addressed including emotional and physical trauma, repeated deployments, post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury and substance abuse. All branches of military service see the need for therapists trained to work with the unique needs of military families and are looking for qualified therapists to assist these families.
