Military Family Life School Counselor - MFLC - Yokosuka, Japan
A career of purpose—serving our nation’s military children and families—is open for you, an empathetic, supportive and motivational licensed counselor who can proactively help military children overcome common challenges such as a deployment of a parent, frequent relocation and emotional management.
Leidos partners with the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Military and Family Life Counseling (MFLC) Program to provide highly confidential counseling services and support to military service members and their families. Non-medical counseling is preventive in nature and aims to address and solve issues before they become more harmful problems.
Many people like you, who have behavioral or mental health experience, are finding satisfaction in the non-medical counseling profession. Your education and experience can more effectively help people navigate life’s challenges when you’re not spending long hours completing billing and documentation, filing paperwork or sitting at a desk all day.
The MFLC model emphasizes simple and easy documentation used for reporting activity only:
• No long narratives to generate
• No insurance to file
• No progress notes
• No treatment plans
Along with job satisfaction, you will be a part of the force of counseling excellence that makes a meaningful difference for U.S. Service Members and their families! Counselors play a vital role in helping service members and their families with support services they truly need. Military school children face unique emotional and environmental challenges due to the stress of military life.
This is an opportunity for you to reach them where and when you are most needed:
• Support children, classrooms and parents with management and engagement strategies, reminders of appropriate developmental focus and educational activities.
• Promote creativity and positivity through approved materials and tools.
• Give presentations that build skills and problem-solving capabilities.
• Build rapport with parents and families by attending events and creating education and awareness about the importance of counseling services.
• Help military spouses balance military life, careers, education, and parenting.
• Become an integral part of the military educational leadership community that shapes our nation’s future. Many MFLCs receive military honors and awards as a gesture of appreciation for the value they bring!
Counseling services are generally preventive in nature and address topics such as living conditions, life skills, relationships at home and work, stress management, adjustment issues, marital problems, parenting, fear, grief, loss and much more. Our counselors use their clinical skills and past experience to identify high risk behaviors and assist in referral for ongoing treatment and support.
