The Impact of Deployment and Combat Stress on Families and Children, Part II: Enhancing Resilience

 

Welcome to Part 2 of The Impact of Deployment and Combat Stress on Families and Children. As mentioned in Part 1 of this course, since 2001 there have been over 2.4 million deployments in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). With the demands from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as humanitarian and peacekeeping missions, the number of Service members and their families who have endured multiple deployments is unprecedented. Greater than half of all Service members who deploy leave behind spouses and/or children. Approximately 2 million children have experienced a parental deployment in support of OEF and OIF with an estimated 220,000 children with at least one parent deployed at present (Bergdahl, 2013). Being able to assist children, couples, and families in successfully adapting to the challenges and adversity presented by deployment is critical for mental health providers working with this population. The goal of this course is to introduce you to some general information regarding resilience in families and, specifically, how to increase resiliency in couples and children negotiating the challenge of deployment. It is highly recommended that you take Part 1 of this course prior to taking Part 2. Also, if you are not familiar with the military, it is highly recommended that you take the course “Military Cultural Competence” prior to taking this course.

The Impact of Deployment and Combat Stress on Families and Children, Part II: Enhancing Resilience is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
