Counseling department of the armed forces

 

In 2012-2014, as part of a publication, the HHC interviewed a number of humanist spiritual counsellors about their lives and work in the Dutch armed forces. The interviews were with retired counsellors and counsellors in active service. They give a good insight into the work of these people before, during and after military missions over the years. They also give an insight into the problems they have to deal with.

 

A number of interviews were transcribed by employees of the Veterans’ Institute. The rest were transcribed by employees of the HHC. This means the form of the transcription may differ. The Veterans Institute has transcribed the interviews roughly, by time and subject. The HHC transcribed the interviews verbatim.
