Family
Strengthening

Families that live with our HEROES that cope with PTS can be very hard and even harmful for the family bond and personal relationships. PTS not only impacts the HERO, but also the people that surround them. Many times, the HERO may avoid expressing emotions and even detach from others, leading further issues within the family and personal relationships to include behavioral problems among the children.
