Study: Children of deployed parents face risk of emotional difficulties
from Army News Service
The cumulative number of months parents spend deployed is tied to emotional difficulties in Army children, experts said at the Association of the United States Army's Family Forum I. The finding came from a five-year longitudinal study sponsored by the RAND Corporation, the Office of the Army Surgeon General and the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury. The rolling study followed some 2,700 military families from all branches, serving in both the active and reserve components, across three-year-deployment cycles between 2011 and 2015. During the study, researchers collected data from service members, spouses and children over the age of 11.
