Phase 2 offers veterans the tools needed to build resiliency. Resilient individuals have been described as those who not only survive but thrive during and after adversity.
Using an evidence based model developed by Dr. Tese Stephens, participants will learn to identify and enhance protective factors in order to better manage adversity and stress throughout their transition. The skills learned lead to increased resilience demonstrated by enhanced coping and adaptive abilities.
Participants will identify and set goals relating to relationships, education, employment, and volunteerism in order to pursue their new mission and re-defined purpose.
