Format: Paperback
Increasing numbers of civilian psychotherapists and mental health counselors are working with military service members, their spouses, and families. More and more military families are going off base for assistance, either because they are dissatisfied with the service they receive from military docs, or simply because they don't like the wait. Also, in response to the need for services to treat the growing population of veterans with service related brain injuries and stress disabilities, the military is actively recruiting qualified civilian mental health clinicians through employee-assistance-type programs (EAPs). However, until now, there has been no published resource for guiding these non-military treatment providers.
A welcome step in this direction is provided by Counseling Military Families, which is specifically intended to be a guide to the culture and ethos of military service for nonmilitary clinicians.
Quite usefully, the first two chapters in Part I orient the civilian clinician to military service and military culture, everything from how to understand ranks in different service branches, to comprehending the structure of an all-volunteer service. Part II focuses on the military family itself, covering such topics as spouses, children, extended families, soldiers as parents, double-military families, extended families and stepfamilies, and retired veterans.
Part III is devoted to treatment. The first chapter in this section delineates some of the common stresses of military families, including deployment stress, PTSD, family violence, and alcoholism.

This is a book written by a therapist for therapists. It gives a great explanation about military life, to include customs and courtesies, rank structure, mission focus, and the role of families and combat buddies. I would recommend this to former military members and civilian counselors to help fill in some of the questions about the different services and definitely for a good understanding of how we can be helpful to our military service members, whether they have seen combat, have been deployed repeatedly, or belong to the active or inactive services. There is so much to learn and understand, beyond what most people learn in graduate school. This book makes for a great introduction. :)

Lynn has done a great job in pulling together all of the interviews/information she gathered from counselors and therapists who treat active duty and their family members, as well as, described her own professional experience. This should be required for students in the field who have the desire to work with military personnel. I was honored to have been able to contribute to this work.

A bit of trying too hard to cover too much. Should be a two-volume set: one comparing and contrasting all the services' subcutures and civilian life and the second covering how to work with each subculture.

Counseling Military Families provides a source of information for providers that is well organized and easy to read. Ms. Hall's background has given her the experience working with children from military families and the insight in how to address and understand their concerns.

Much of the book explains military life and the inherent dilemmas for families, which is helpful for counselors and families. I found the most important aspect of the book--a more effective and 'health and normalcy" view, is the theory of transitions, change brings loss and there is constant ubiquitous change in the life of military families.
