Pre-Deployment Resilience Training for Circle of Support

This DCRT module is provided to members of a Soldier’s Circle of Support (e.g., Spouse, significant other, parent(s), siblings, extended family, friends, mentors) around the same time frame that their Soldiers receive the Pre-Deployment Resilience Training for Soldiers module. According to AR 350-53, DCRT must be offered to Circle of Support members whose Soldier is deploying for 90 days or longer for purposes other than training. This module is recommended to take place 1 to 6 months prior to a deployment, ideally around the 3-month mark. The module aims to prepare Circle of Support members for the realities and challenges commonly encountered prior to and during a deployment.
