The Brookfield Institute supports veterans and their families, because we know how service affects everyone.

We have teamed up with Clear Path for Veterans and Jennifer Baubitz, an adjunct professor at Assumption College, for a June 18 Trauma and the Military Family workshop.

The workshop is designed for spouses, parents, children and all family members of anyone who has served in in any era, the National Guard or reserves.

“The families get forgotten about a lot,” says Jeannine Germain, executive officer and treasurer of Clear Path for Veterans New England. She founded a family group to help strengthen and increase resilience, as well as lend support to each other. When her husband, Scott, was on active duty, she relied on fellow military spouses but now, those people aren’t right in her backyard any longer. “I started the family group in case other military spouses felt the same way I did.”

The free workshop will help you:

  • Learn about trauma’s effects and healthy responses

  • Build resilience

  • Engage with your community

While the workshop is free, but registration is required for a head count on the light supper that will be provided.
