Understanding the Needs of Military Families
For over a decade, the deployment of 2.1 million U.S. military personnel to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq has been a significant stressor for military families. The presentation will provide an overview of military culture, emphasize the importance of including the family system in providing care, and explore mechanisms of resilience.
