#9325 Any separation from loved ones is an emotionally difficult time for all concerned, especially when children are involved but separation is now a modern day military reality. Those unfamiliar with the military may not understand the nuances of short-term versus long-term deployments.
Those that do rarely gain exposure to successful strategies for handling deployments when family, such as young children, disabled or other special circumstances, are also involved. As a result, military families must learn to adapt to long-distance relationships, as well as how to adjust and positively cope with separations for various training deployments and real-life exercises.
The Deployment Toolkit covers the basic challenges military families may face before, during, and after deployment. The military is a huge family with scores of support groups, both official and unofficial, to help families prepare for separation and the stresses associated with the long absences.
This book provides an easily accessible self-help guide to dealing with and understanding deployment. The authors identify the different types of separations and deployments, emotional adjustments involved, and resources available to families in the military.
