Stronger Families: Couples Seminar
In 2014, 51 couples Oxygen Seminars were held across the country, including 11 seminars for wounded, ill and injured troops and their spouses. As a USO Transition 360 Alliance partner, the USO is continuing to work with Stronger Families to increase the offering of the Oxygen events in 2015 to 95 total. In addition, we are scaling the program to reach more troops and their families through multiple platforms, to include an interactive online platform and website, Oxygen 365. This platform will customize a growth plan for couples that includes access to expert podcasts covering topics such as communication, conflict resolution, intimacy, finances and issues related to pre-deployment, deployment and reintegration.
