American Red Cross helps military families reconnect


The Sandusky County Chapter of the American Red Cross is offering “Reconnection Workshops, Presented by Walmart”, on Nov. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m.at the Red Cross building, 1245 Napoleon St., Fremont.

This facilitated session is called “Communicating Clearly” and will focus on skills building to enhance the likelihood of positive reconnections with armed forces personnel and their families following a military deployment.  “Deployments are a fact of life in the military,” said Sandusky County Director, John Bailey  “Whether a service member’s absence is due to a training exercise, sea duty, combat, or unaccompanied duty in a remote location, separation and reunification pose unique opportunities as well as challenges for all family members.  The American Red Cross, with support from Walmart, developed a series of workshops to assist all military families in managing the family’s readjustment to the service member’s return.”


Actively licensed and specially trained Red Cross mental health professionals will lead participants through information and discussions designed to help them identify and respond to the challenges of readjusting to and transitioning back to a changed family dynamic.  The workshops are targeted to service members and their spouses, children, parents, siblings and significant others.  Topics include Communicating Clearly, Exploring Stress and Trauma, Identifying Depression, Relating to Children, and Working Through Anger.  Participants have the option of choosing any or all of the workshops.  


Each workshop is approximately two hours in length.  Participants can take them in any order and select those most applicable to their situation.  Workshops are free to military members and their families and occur in a supportive and confidential environment.  The deadline for registering for the up-coming workshop is Oct. 30.


For more information about the current workshop being offered or to register for future workshops go to  www.redcross.org/reconnectionworkshops or contact the local Red Cross office at 419 332-5574.
