The Relationship Changes of Military Couples During Reintegration

The Relationship Changes of Military Couples During Reintegration

About This Webinar:

(webinar 5 of 5 in the military couple relationship series)

Following their return home from deployment, military couples experience a wide variety of changes in their relationship.  This webinar will explore the findings of an 8-month longitudinal study of 555 military couples during the reintegration period.  Based on these findings, recommendations for prevention and intervention services designed to help military couples negotiate relationship changes across the post-deployment transition will be discussed.

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Identify the major domains of relationship changes military couples experience during the post-deployment period.
  • Understand the valence of the relationship changes military couples experience during reintegration (positive, negative, and neutral).
  • Describe the trajectories of positive, negative, and neutral relationship changes military couples experience over time during the post-deployment period.
  • Evaluate recommendations for prevention and intervention services designed to help military couples negotiate relationship changes across the post-deployment transition.


Lynne M. Knobloch-Fedders is an assistant professor in the Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology at Marquette University, and a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in couple and family therapy. Her research investigates the links between mental health, couple relationships, and psychotherapy process and outcome, with a particular emphasis on promoting military family health and well-being.
