About This Webinar:
How do families manage deployments and family separation? The short answer is that it’s a process – or, perhaps more aptly, a cycle.
This webinar explores the deployment cycle and associated challenges from the perspective of different family members and identifies circumstances and family contexts that exacerbate the stress of being separated. Join this webinar to discuss evidence-based tips and strategies for serving and empowering military families throughout the deployment cycle based on decades of research across the deployment cycle.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the stages of deployment from the perspectives of different family members.
- Articulate common stressors encountered during the deployment cycle for military families.
- Identify families who may have more difficulty managing deployment-related stress and/or be at greater risk of disruption due to deployment.
- Explore research-based tips and strategies for helping military families prepare for and manage daily hassles and stressors associated with deployment.
- Locate additional resources that may aid in your efforts to support military families during deployment.
This webinar is based, in part, on a recent report by Military REACH focused on evidence-based strategies to help military families navigate deployment.
