Strategic Resources, Inc. (SRI), a company with 30 years of
excellence serving the Federal Government; and, over 15 years
supporting Military Family Readiness and Resiliency for the
Department of Defense, is honored to announce our recent contract
award in support of the Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC)
Program. SRI is an international, ISO 9001:2015 Certified and CMMI
Maturity Level 3 Rated full service provider and we welcome you to
become a part of our network.
Overview: SRI is actively seeking energetic, compassionate,
licensed counselors and social workers to provide non-medical
counseling services to military service members and their families.
Non-medical counseling is supportive in nature and addresses:
conditions of living; life skills; improving relationships at home
and at work; stress management; adjustment issues, such as those
related to returning from deployment; marital problems; parenting,
and fear, grief and loss. Counseling modalities consist of
individual, family, couples and groups. The Child and Youth
Behavioral (CYB)-MFLC provides in person, confidential, non-medical
counseling services that benefit military children. The demands of
military life may be most difficult for children, who may have to
start over in new schools, have little or no control over where
they go, and generally lack the coping skills of adults. CYB-MFLCs
understand the issues military children face and can provide
support to meet their individual needs. CYB-MFLCs are usually based
out of or near a military installation, working out of a school,
Child Development Center (CDC), camp, or Youth and Teen Center.
Locations are projected to include installations in almost all
states (including the District of Columbia), U.S. territories and
commonwealths, as well as many international locations.
Types of Assignments: CYB-MFLCs can be hired in different
capacities to meet the demand for counseling services in support of
military installations. 1) A Rotational assignment includes serving
as a full-time counselor working 40 hours a week performing the
traditional walk-around counseling/coaching services rotating to
another role at the conclusion of the employment term, generally
one year (or a school year). 2) An On-demand assignment includes
being hired for a specified period - one hour up to three days to
remain on a list of available and qualified licensed counselors and
social workers available to work when called. 3) A Surge assignment
meets the immediate needs of a military installation in response to
a crisis, special event, or temporary increase in counseling
requirements. The duration is for a specified period - up to 90
days. 4) A Camp assignment is to provide counselor coverage during
recreational camp programs and last for a few days up to three
months for long term camps (e.g. summer camp).
