What Will You Learn in the Graduate Military Resilience Certificate?

As service members leave the stress of combat and military deployment, many often struggle to find ways to reconnect with their family and civilian life. The feelings of isolation and aimlessness can reach a crisis point, leading to significant impairment of daily life for military veterans. Military personnel exposed to traumatic events such as combat-related injury or personal loss may develop severe mental health issues such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The online Graduate Certificate in Military Resilience is designed to teach students how to mitigate the effects of post-traumatic stress, critical incident stress, and personal crises on individuals and families. This graduate certificate program examines the two primary transitions of military life: the reintegration challenges that recently deployed military members can encounter as they blend back into family, community, church, and a peacetime setting; and the transition from military to civilian life and careers. The online Graduate Military Resilience Certificate is designed to equip caregivers with knowledge, skills, and expertise to assist veterans and their families in these critical life transitions.
