Life Guard
Bringing New Life to The Guard

What is Life Guard?

Community based workshops facilitated by volunteer staff from the Arkansas National Guard Family Readiness Program and the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System. Workshop participants will be introduced to life building skills through experiential exercises, small group discussions and metaphors and analogies which if applied are intended to enhance their military, family and daily lives.

What the Life Guard program is NOT:

Workshops are NOT briefings. You will not be asked to view a PowerPoint presentation or listen to lectures. You will not be asked to share any personal information about yourself or complete any psychological assessments.

Who is the program for?

All returning OEF/OIF veterans are encouraged to participate as well as their spouses/significant others. Also veterans concerned
about fellow veterans and family members concerned
about themselves or others they love.

What are the objectives of a Life Guard workshop?

Participants will learn how to apply workshop skills in their own lives. They will learn how to use metaphors & analogies as memory aids and as useful way to introduce skills to peers and others in whom they are concerned. Participants will learn how to recognize when to introduce skills to peers and how to teach these skills to their peers.

When and where are the workshops held?

Workshops are held at different locations throughout the state away from the military and/or clinical setting and are scheduled to be held quarterly or more often as requested by units. Dates and locations will be announced and will be added to our web-site calendar of events as scheduled.

What is the cost and how do I sign up?

There is no cost for these workshops nor do you need to formally register, simply call the state office at 800-446-4645 or 501-212-4102 and let us know which workshop you are interested in attending.
(This is only that we may have a number for event preparation purposes). You will not be asked to leave your name or any other information.
