The Well-Being of Military Children: Augmenting Clinical Care with Web- and Mobile-Based Tools

Arlington, VA US
March 19, 2015


 

DCoE Webinar Series (T2): March 2015
 

Date/Time: March 19, 2015; 1-2:30 p.m. (ET)
 

Research on the psychological health of military children indicates that frequent transitions such as moving, family member separations and the cumulative effects of multiple deployments can cause psychological distress, which impacts the well-being of parents and children. Although military children are generally resilient, many are coping with increased levels of anxiety, stress, depressive symptoms, suicidal ideation and behavioral problems.

Age-appropriate psychoeducation web-based programs for children have been found to assist with teaching coping strategies and as a result of online community peer support improve their behavioral health. Discussion will include a review of the Military Kids Connect® website, a technology-based resource for military preschoolers to teens, which may serve to augment clinical care practices and to improve how health care providers interact with military children.
 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the dynamics of separation on the military family system.
  • Examine the use of web-based and mobile apps as resources in clinical settings serving military children.
  • Integrate the use of the Military Kids Connect® website as a social media tool to  improve understanding of the influence of the military culture on military children.
