Resiliency is the ability to bounce back from various stresses and adversities. From a military point of view, Resilience is a key trait that every soldier should possess. As our military undergoes the stresses of multiple deployments, it can be extremely difficult to cope with jumping from various types of stressful situations, whether is be the unrelenting environment of a war-zone or the business and stresses of home and family life. It is important for both the soldier and the family to understand what goes into transitioning from one mode of living to another. Unfortunately, a lack of understanding or a way to release the tension can sometimes be fatal. ACS facilitates either CSF2 Resilience Training or a Spouse Resilience Seminar every month. You can call 878-3172 for more information or to register.
The military has provided a program for Soldiers and their support systems to learn about resiliency, and has programs that offers ways to release the stress. The program, based on 30-plus years of scientific study and results, uses individual assessments, tailored virtual training, classroom training and embedded resilience experts to provide the critical skills our Soldiers, Family members and Army Civilians need.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
CSF marks a new era for the Army by comprehensively equipping and training our Soldiers, Family members and Army Civilians to maximize their potential and face the physical and psychological challenges of sustained operations. We are committed to a true prevention model, aimed at the entire force, which will enhance resilience and coping skills enabling them to grow and thrive in today's Army.
GLOBAL ASSESMENT TOOL
The Army is committed to a prevention model for the entire force, enhancing Soldiers resilience and coping skills. This model consists of life-long learning that begins by providing individual assessment through the Global Assessment Tool. The Global Assessment Tool (GAT), as part of the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program, provides a person with a baseline in the four dimensions of strength: emotional, social, spiritual and family; and provides an opportunity to track self-development and growth in these areas over time.
