Participation in FOCUS is voluntary, confidential, and is not in the chain of command. Participation in the 8-session resilience training is very flexible. We serve the needs of individual families and can accommodate your schedule by adjusting the number of training sessions. We also have family friendly hours and if both parents are unable to participate, we welcome one parent or caregivers to bring the family to FOCUS.

Strengthening the Homebase

FOCUS (Families OverComing Under Stress™) provides resiliency training to military children and families. It teaches practical skills to meet the challenges of deployment and reintegration, to communicate and solve problems effectively, and to successfully set goals together and create a shared family story.

Why Focus?

As a service initiated by the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED), FOCUS Project addresses concerns related to parental combat operational stress injuries and combat-related physical injuries by providing state-of-the-art family resiliency services to military children and families at designated Navy and Marine Corps sites. Since 2009, FOCUS Family Resiliency Services have been made available to Army and Air Force families at designated installations through support from the Department of Defense Office of Family Policy.

Project Goals

  • Assist family members to address deployment stress and reminders to minimize their interference with parenting and family life.
  • Enhance family communication and support by developing a shared family narrative about the deployment experiences.
  • Provide individual and community level consultations, workshops, and skill-building groups designed to support family resilience.
