A Problem Solving Class to Help Achieve Life's Goals

MOVING FORWARD is an educational program. It was developed to help Veterans become more successful in reaching life's goals. 

Difficulties can arise when we are under a lot of stress.  Such stress can involve money problems, relationship concerns, job issues, or health challenges. Stress can lead to emotional distress, as well as physical health problems. When this occurs, we often feel overwhelmed and confused about knowing what to do. This program was developed to help Veterans like you "move forward" in your lives.

Conducted in a classroom setting, Moving Forward teaches practical problem-solving skills to help you overcome obstacles that often stand in the way.

How Can This Program Help You?

Moving Forward is an educational and life coaching program. It teaches you how to better handle those stressful problems often associated with transitioning back to civilian life or life in general. Such problems can include the following:

  • finding a job
  • deciding on a new career
  • becoming a parent for the first time
  • maintaining good relationships with family and friends
  • getting a divorce
  • getting married
  • dealing with financial difficulties
  • trying to think more optimistically about the future
  • coping with physical health problems

Classes will focus on setting  reasonable life goals, being creative in coming up with good solutions, making better decisions, and knowing what steps to take when things are not going well.

 How Much Time Does This Program Take?

The program consists of one class per week for four weeks. The classes are on Tuesday evenings for one hour starting February 21st at the Fargo VA Healthcare System (2101 Elm St. N, Fargo) on the 4th floor.
