Caregivers Seminars provide caregivers (husbands, wives, parents, hospital staff and other family members supporting wounded, ill and injured troops) practical advice and valuable information about available resources. Sessions address such topics as post-traumatic stress disorder, caregiver boundaries and intimacy, compassion fatigue, parenting, childhood grief and caregiver resiliency. Caregivers Seminars provide a forum to speak candidly about the issues they face while seeking advice from subject-matter experts and fellow caregivers.

The USO will once again host four Caregiver Seminars in 2015. Two fall seminars are scheduled for Seattle, Washington and Fort Hood, Texas. Seminars were held earlier in 2015 at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
