The COPE Program

The Cope Program

Couples Overcoming PTSD Every Day

The COPE Program is the brain child of LCol (retired) Chris Linford, his wife Kathryn and Dr Tim Black PhD, R Psych. They have worked hard at gathering the right group of stakeholders to the table to make the COPE Program a reality. Chris served 33 years in the Canadian Armed Forces and has battled PTSD since 1994 after his deployment to Rwanda. Kathryn has also been significantly impacted by his PTSD as well their three children, Victor, Jeffrey and Jennifer. Dr Black has worked with veterans afflicted with PTSD for almost two decades and is renowned for his work nationally.

The Wounded Warriors Canada Couples Overcoming PTSD Every Day, or “COPE”, program includes the spouse or partner as part of the learning and forward movement. During the five-day Phase One of the COPE Program, five couples managing PTSD are gathered together to work on their relationships as a group; they will learn as a tiny community of similarly injured people. The idea is to use this community approach to help couples to recognize they are not alone in this fight; they can all get well together and learn from each other through this process.
