• Support for Military Children
     
    The Military and Family Life Counseling Program helps military children and families navigate challenges. Child and youth behavioral military and family life counselors (CYB-MFLCs) provide confidential, non-medical counseling services to children up to age 18 in groups and individually. They also offer support to families, staff, and support personnel. Working with a counselor can help improve behavior, relationships, and school performance.
     
    CYB-MFLCs are master's or doctorate level, licensed counselors who may:
    • Provide consultation support to parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators on the healthy development of children and youth
    • Model evidence-based intervention approaches
    • Assist educators with strategies for cultivating a deeper understanding of the factors that shape social-emotional development
    • Conduct classroom observations
    Services are private and confidential, except in situations that involve domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault, or otherwise necessitate a duty to warn. Counselors offer non-medical counseling support to help service members and their families build skills and resilience.
     
    CYB-MFLCs provide support on topics including but not limited to:
    • Feelings identification
    • Bullying
    • Self-esteem
    • Separation from parents
    • Problem solving
    • Sibling and parent relationships
    • Time management
    • Deployment and reunification
    • Divorce
