Psychological Health and Resilience of Children in Military Families

Thu April 24, 2014: 1:00 pm-2:30 pm EDT

Event Navigation

REGISTER BEFORE April 24 to join us in supporting the Defense Centers of Excellence (DCoE) Webinar Series by attending their upcoming free webinar!

Children in military families often face a unique set of stressors such as repeated family separations and exposure to trauma, injury, and death. Current literature notes that three out of every five service members who deploy leave families at home. During this post-war transition time, it’s important to recognize and understand the risks and challenges ahead for families of military-connected children. This webinar will explore theoretical insights in current research related to children and military families. During this webinar, participants will learn to:

  • Describe factors from research data which indicate the well-being and functioning of young military children
  • Examine stressors of young military children exposed to parental deployment
  • Evaluate connections between parental psychological symptoms and children’s development and well-being
