Recover From The Psychological Harm Caused by Career Induced Stress

Restoring Optimism and Creating Futures Together

THE PROGRAM FOR WARRIOR AND FAMILY RESTORATION


Members of the Armed Services, first responders/public safety officials and their families across the nation often face psychological and emotional wounds borne of trauma-induced stress from their experiences on front lines of America’s safety.

Sadly, these conditions lead to the destruction of relationships, families, careers and ultimately lives.

For so many of these warriors, their struggles tragically can end up including drinking, drugs, passivity or even violent acting out and suicides. So many express feelings of depression, sadness, loneliness and separation, emotional isolation and intimacy starvation. Too many have feelings of fear, frustration and anger, preoccupation, high stress, anxiety, nervousness and difficulty in focusing.

 

Too often the warrior also finds it difficult to get past the adrenaline inducing negative thrill of excitement from danger or high- risk situations. Too often, the hero misses the unduplicated closeness and camaraderie of those who have shared these highly stressful experiences.

 

For those heroes who have experienced degrees of trauma-induced brokenness, treatment histories have demonstrated clearly that go-it-alone, individual, isolated or one-off treatments of just the warrior alone are far less effective in restoring their lives and enabling them to transition successfully and happily back into civilian society.

We Solve These Problems

The five points of distinction which make w2c programs more effective

Today, there are approximately 6 million post 9-11 military service members and first responders/public safety officials in the U.S. – many face a devastating reality.

  • Fifty percent of the post 9-11 veterans say they have had emotionally traumatic, distressing experiences.
  • Nearly 1 million have been diagnosed with PTSD.
  • Too many endure broken families, depression and anxiety, isolation, feelings of helplessness and even suicide, and substance abuse.

Too often, typical treatment programs for the psychological and emotional wounds of these warriors and their families have been found to be far less effective for two reasons:

  •  They are go-it-alone, one-off, short-term treatments without continuity, and
  • They involve just the warrior alone and not the whole family – leading to the erosion of family relationships.

Among 40,000 U.S. wounded warrior programs, since 2010, W2C answers the missing treatment needs as one of very few to deliver the following critical portfolio of treatment elements:

  1.  Exclusive, singular focus on mental, emotional and spiritual “brokenness healing” and restoration of the warrior/first responder and family for long term success – success based on objectively measured metrics;
  2.  On-going involvement of warrior families and integration with psychological treatment strategies of family systems;
  3.  Consistent, sustained support/ treatment over as much as six months – not short-term, quick-fix approach;
  4.  One of the most comprehensive packages of diverse treatment modalities for maximum effectiveness – not one-shot, one-type;
  5.  Ability to deliver program nationally to any warrior/anywhere/anytime (digitally in 2021) and via scheduled face-to-face programming in various locations – employing “train and certify the trainers” approach for maximum national reach and effect. All trainers served in uniform.

 

Our Overall Benefit

  • W2C saves lives, marriages, families, reduces child abuse and restores warriors to happy, satisfying lives

  • Reestablishes loving, trusting family bonds/community/hope/optimism

 

W2C DIFFERENCE

One of the most effective, family-based therapeutic programs with objectively assessed metrics.

 

It is delivered at no charge to warriors and their families by interdisciplinary professionals, all of whom served in uniform.

  • Regarded as best practice in successfully addressing  divorce and suicide prevention.
  • Directly addresses broken relationships.

Over last 20 years, broken relationships have been the major causal factor for the highest documented divorce rate and resulting suicides in this population.

Our Results:

  • Over 80% of marriages measurably strengthened, staying together for years,
  • Over 30% of these couples renewed their wedding vows, with only a 2.4% divorce rate– – as compared to the 70% failure rate without intervention.
  • 100% treatment success rate for children affected by trauma.

 

The Program for Warrior and Family Restoration” is based on this truth…

“Warriors’ success navigating through and beyond their traumatic experiences depends in large part on how resilient they are. The quality of their close personal and family relationships are the most significant determinant of resiliency – – as noted in nearly every review or study of resilience in the last 50 years.” (New York Times journalist and author, Eilene Zimmerman).
