Resilience tactical pause tips for individual Reservists

While traditional Reservists will participate in their unit’s resilience tactical pause during a unit training assembly weekend, individual Reservists’ participation in resilience training may prove more challenging since their active-duty assigned units may execute resilience tactical pause events when the individual Reservist is not scheduled for duty.

Col. Amy Boehle, commander of the Headquarters Readiness and Integration Organization at Buckley Air Force, Colorado, said she hopes this is not the case.

“According to the chief of staff, the purpose of the resilience tactical pause is to increase Airmen connectedness and sense of purpose among our Airmen in order to increase unit cohesion, trust and confidence in command teams while soliciting feedback to decrease suicides,” she said. “The best place for this is with the individual Reservist’s operational unit where the command team can look in the member’s eyes and assess his or her well-being.

“If individual Reservists are unable to attend their organization’s resilience tactical pause, we strongly recommend supervisors call their Airmen and engage in sincere conversations about connectedness, resilience, outlets for seeking help and their value as individuals to the team.”

Boehle said HQ RIO and its detachments are ready to support individual Reservists and owning organizations if needed.

“Our individual Reservists have multiple helping agencies they can reach out to at their owning organization, but HQ RIO can always work with individual Reservists to find the support they need and promote help-seeking,” she said. “We can help locate religious support teams, mental health professionals, community support coordinators, violence prevention integrators, sexual assault response coordinators, volunteer victim advocates, military and family life counselors, family advocacy program personnel, community cohesion coordinators, physical health professionals, master resilience trainers and legal assistance attorneys.”
