Psychological Health and Resilience of Children in Military Families

Arlington, VA US
April 24, 2014


 

DCoE Webinar Series (Psychological Health):  April 24, 2014
 

Date/Time: April 24, 2014; 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT)
 

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 is 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 and examine two major constructs: the importance of developmental timing of events and how multiple interdependent systems influence development and well-being.  Discussion will include examples of lessons learned from research studies and applicability to current clinical practices.

You are invited to the DCoE April 2014 webinar titled, Psychological Health and Resilience of Children in Military Families.  We look forward to your participation on Thursday, April 24, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. (EDT).  Below are the event details and instructions for participating.
