CDP Presents: The Implications of Military Deployments for the Children of Current and Former Members of the U.S. Armed Forces online via Zoom
10 April, Noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern
Description: In this 90 minute webinar, participants will learn about the population of children of current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and the implications of military deployments for those children. Specific content to be presented will focus on the characteristics of children of members of the Active and Reserve components, the nature of military deployments, and recent evidence about short- and long-term correlates for children’s well-being and functioning of exposure to a parental military deployment. Strengths and limitations of recent evidence will be presented. Finally, consideration will be given to factors that may mediate or moderate the effects of deployments on children and possible strategies for boosting the resilience of military families.
