Uniformed services personnel respond to individual and cumulative trauma experiences using coping strategies that are common to the culture of their organization. They receive some training and often have available to them a variety of psychological assistance. Their family members, however, are often left to their own to recognize and understand the suffering of their loved one. Like the responder, the family member finds this difficult to do alone.
Providing information and an educational opportunity for family members and those who care for uniformed services responder family members should be an integral part of a good CISM program.
