Barbee, Ellie Ketchem; Correa, Vivian I.; Baughan, Cynthia C.
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v44 n3 p4-11 2016
Early childhood professionals can provide services and effective support to assist military families with healthy coping and functioning before, during, and after deployment. The purpose of this article is to examine what is known about the effects of stressors associated with the military lifestyle and how they impact returning military members, the non-deployed at-home spouse, and the military child. In addition, research regarding the success of home-based intervention strategies for military families will be given special consideration. The authors will discuss implications and suggestions for early childhood practitioners about how to provide services and effective support to assist with healthy coping and functioning.
