Resilience training and Resilient Spouse Academy planned

Audrey Peterson-Hosto
Exceptional Family Member Program Manager

Among the services provided by Army Community Service, or ACS, resilience training is available to Department of the Army civilians and military spouses at Fort Huachuca. Soldiers can attend this training if instruction is not available through the Military Master Resilience Trainers assigned to the unit.

Resilience training focuses on specific skills to develop abilities to understand the thoughts, emotions and behaviors of self and others and to master these skills to strengthen relationships through communication strategies. The instruction also allows one to discuss problems assertively, respond constructively to positive experiences, and praise effectively. ACS has five certified master resilience trainers on staff, all trained at the University of Pennsylvania.

The primary focus of the ACS Resilience Training is to teach DA civilians and military spouses skills they can use to become more resilient. This training encompasses Resilience Training, Resilient Spouse Academy and Pre/Post Deployment Modules.

Instructors encourage participants to complete the Global Assessment Tool, or GAT, and the Values in Action, or VIA, Strengths Survey.

The GAT is a multiple item questionnaire that provides the individual with a snapshot of their psychological health along four dimensions – social, emotional, spiritual, and family fitness. The VIA is a 240-question survey that helps identify character strengths in yourself and others. Once people complete the GAT, they will receive feedback that describes their resilience level. This tool is meant to help build self-awareness and can help with team building and communication.

The upcoming dates for Resilience Training are June 5 – 6, Aug. 21 – 22 and Oct. 2 – 3. Call 533.6871.

The upcoming dates for the Resilient Spouse Academy are July 8 – 12 and Sept. 16 – 21. Call 533.3107.
