Social Workers Helping Army Wives Deal with Added Stress

Cheers to NPR for this article on a study on the stress army wives experience when their mates are deployed and return home.

The article quotes National Association of Social Workers member Rene Robichaux, who is social work programs manager for the U.S. Army Medical Command. Robichaux talked about what social workers are doing to help families dealing with the added stress of repeated troop deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

For instance, the army is hiring dozens of new family and marriage therapists and is even offering counseling by telephone, Robichaux said.
