I've been given an awesome opportunity to work with some active duty patients. Some have been on deployments but others are just out of boot camp. Some love the USMC others just want out. Some are dealing with PTSD, others don't like to take orders. In other words, it's wide open.
With our usual population we have set groups that we do. In looking at our binder, I'm finding that many aren't appropriate. They feel too basic. These men and women have been through a lot and having them completing a worksheet seems like a cheap and easy way to say I did a group.
We're supposed to cover topics like Life Skills, Self Expression, Living in Balance. Can anyone suggest topics or activities that might work with this population?
