Military & Family

Resilience Services

BCG is committed to ensuring that military members and their families succeed in all aspects of life. Military members have sacrificed to ensure that all Americans can enjoy the benefits of freedom and democracy. We provide high-quality education and training for organizations and healthcare professionals who serve our nation’s heroes.

More Than a Job

It’s a Lifestyle…


As active duty service members transition into civilian life and embrace the distinguished title of veteran, it is imperative that healthcare professionals, spiritual leaders, and others gain the necessary knowledge to treat and support our heroes.

By developing a deeper understanding of the military culture, healthcare professionals and others will be better equipped to develop stronger therapeutic alliances with service members and veterans, which in return can lead to more effective treatment outcomes, healthier families, and stronger communities.

Family Matters

Adjusting to Life After Deployments & Discharge…


Returning home from deployment can be challenging in a variety of ways for service members. They not only struggle to cope with the strong feelings from their deployment; they also wrestle with readjusting back into family life. Unfortunately, some service members return from deployment only to be discharged into the community. By recognizing these challenges and providing support early, healthcare professionals and others can help service members reintegrate back into family life and the community with less trauma.

Hidden Wounds

What Mental Health Looks Like…


History has shown that Service members and Veterans have not utilized behavioral health services as often as other vulnerable populations. This is despite numerous research literature showing that they are at higher risk of suffering from trauma and stress related disorders such as Adjustment Disorder and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. These vulnerable populations typically do not seek help or receive preventive mental health treatment in a timely manner due to stigma concerns and lack of access to culturally sensitive clinicians. The military culture is distinct in that both are defined by core values and beliefs that makes help-seeking behavior challenging. Given this, it is imperative that healthcare professionals develop the proper knowledge and skillset needed to deliver evidenced-based treatments to this vulnerable population.

Resilience Building

Our heroes deserve a fighting chance…


Resilience is defined differently for many individuals because it takes on many forms and has various components, but most researchers agree that resilience is associated with an individual’s ability to bounce back after facing adversity. However, when faced with adversity a large percentage of Service Members struggle with understanding and modifying behaviors attributed to their adversity. This in return affects their ability to bounce back.
