This program, a foundation of VA's National Warrior to Soul Mate initiative, will equip instructors to empower veterans and their families with practical tools to create, nurture, restore, and rekindle relationships through the application of acquired skills and knowledge. In this intensive, four-day, experiential training, VA professionals will discover immediately usable skills that facilitate expanded communication, deepen empathy, bonding and attachment, promote constructive conflict resolution, and enhance emotional understanding, expression, connection and forgiveness which can in turn be applied in the family relationships of our combat veterans.
