When a military service member deploys, the family deploys as well. Children are often silent sufferers when experiencing stress related to a family member’s military service. In this presentation James Corbin will discuss common characteristics of military families and some of the risk factors that can make military children particularly vulnerable to stress and secondary trauma. Both Type 1 and Type 2 trauma will be defined and discussed.
Additionally, this presentation will explore various forms of play therapy often used to treat children of military families, as well as examine play therapy's benefits and its history and use with childhood trauma. In particular, James will discuss techniques for the application of child-centered play therapy with children experiencing trauma and grief. This presentation will also identify and provide resources for clinicians working with both children and parents in military families.
