Bibliography of Books

Congregation Support Reading Material

This book is one we have researched and what we at CareForTheTroops have decided to mail one free copy to each congregation that signs up as a Veteran Friendly Congregation (VFC). The congregations can then decide if they want to order more...for their military ministry members...for use by congregation members attending an adult education class using this book...whatever the reason.

There are 4 authors including a former military chaplain now Lutheran Pastor, a Social Worker, and 2 PhD's in Counselor Ed and Nursing. What we liked about the book is the following:

Here are additional books that might be helpful to members of a Military Ministry team or congregational members.


This representative list of DVDs provides a wide range of issues about what military personnel and their families and communities are facing.

The Francine Shapiro Library is dedicated to Francine Shapiro, originator and developer of the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing (EMDR). The Francine Shapiro Library (FSL) is the premier repository for scholarly articles and other important writings related to the AIP and EMDR. The intent of the FSL is twofold: (1) to electronically house documents related to EMDR or AIP and (2) to maintain a comprehensive, accurate, and up-to-date list of citations related to AIP and EMDR. The Library is hosted by Northern Kentucky University as a service to EMDR International Association. Here is a link to the library
