As military folks know, the ruck is the backpack that carries all your gear and supplies and can weigh 70-90 pounds. During Unpacking Your Emotional Ruck programming, the ruck represents the unique, emotional weight carried by military connected individuals that often differs from their civilian counterparts.
This day-long workshop which participants can attend on September 17 or September 18, is hosted by The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic and Veteran Wellness Center at Endeavors. It uses evidence-based and anecdotal approaches to identify risk-protective factors and suggests coping strategies for those with military connections. To encourage healthy coping skills, SAFE Project partners with a Marine Corps veteran and military spouse, Richelle Futch, to host Unpacking Your Emotional Ruck workshops.
We will be providing a light breakfast, boxed lunches, and coffee/tea and sodas. Space is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, so please sign up ASAP to ensure your seat! Please wear a mask. We hope you’ll join us on either September 17 or September 18, 2021.
For questions, please email Bill Pinamont, Senior Director of SAFE Veterans at SAFE Project, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is supported by Walmart.
