Institute for Military Resiliency Launches New Courses
February 29, 2012 | Heather Usewicz
The Liberty University Institute for Military Resilience (IMR) has launched its first courses to be offered in conjunction with the Center for Counseling and Family Studies. Courses available for the 2012 Spring D sub-term include The Resilient Warrior (MILT 275) and The Resilient Leader (MILT 525).
Courses offered through the IMR have been created to educate servicemembers, spouses, families, pastors, churches, and communities regarding mental, physical, social, and spiritual needs associated with the hidden wounds of war. Subject materials will offer students a hands-on approach to dealing with the overall challenges of military service, from overseas deployment to re-acclimation to civilian life.
Course curriculum was developed by retired Army Maj. Gen. Robert F. Dees in conjunction with Liberty faculty from the Department of Counseling. Though designed with servicemembers in mind, these courses have the potential to impact the lives of anyone who enrolls.
“We are all warriors, we are all in a fight,” Dees said.
As the nation’s first faith-based military resiliency program, Liberty believes that the addition of the IMR will impact lives of servicemembers and their families with relevant, faith-based curriculum and resources. Liberty ultimately desires to impact the hearts, souls, and minds of warriors through the help, hope, and healing of Jesus Christ.
