Licensed clinical social workers and counselors provide comprehensive counseling services from the initial assessment through treatment completion.
The counseling services are designed to be solution-focused, brief treatment, which means each client is seen for about 10 sessions. If circumstances are such, that additional treatment is required, an extension for service can be obtained by the clinician from the clinical supervisor. The clinical services provided can be individual, couple, family or group therapy. The services are provided for active duty and their dependents. Treatment of minor dependents is for ages 6-18.
Specialized counseling is available for issues such as transition, domestic/family violence, sexual assault, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), transition/deployment, couple’s relationships and parent/child relationships.
Clinicians are also specially trained and available to provide Combat Operational Stress-First Aid (COSFA) intervention to any individual or group of people affected by a traumatic incident.
The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) Program offers information and referral to survivors of sexual assault. Training resources and assistance are available to commands to implement their own SAPR programs. A three-day SAPR Advocate training is offered quarterly for command representatives, SAPR points of contact and other individuals involved in responding to sexual assault incidents. Contact the FFSC SAPR Coordinator at 847-688-3603 ext. 206 or 207.
