CPT KEAST
EFFECTS OF DEPLOYMENT
 AND REDEPLOYMENT ON
  MILITARY FAMILIES
               PURPOSE
• To give an overview of the various
  effects of deployment and
  redeployment on the military family
  and discuss appropriate responses.
            OUTLINE


• Observations of Impact on Family

• Four Processes that Effect Families

• Tips and Recommended Prevention
  Measures
 The Deployment Adjustment
           Stages
                   Pre-Deployment
1.   Anticipation of Loss
2.   Detachment & Withdrawal
                     Deployment
3.   Emotional Disorganization
4.   Recovery & Stabilization
5.   Anticipation of Homecoming
                  Post-Deployment
6.   Renegotiation of the Marriage Contract
7.   Reintegration & Stabilization
   OBSERVATIONS OF
 IMPACT ON THE FAMILY
      (CHILDREN)
• New child-care arrangements (or no
  child-care arrangements)
• Increase in minor illness and Doctor’s
  visits (colds, flu, etc..)
• Nightmares
• Bedwetting
• Developmental regression
   OBSERVATIONS OF
 IMPACT ON THE FAMILY
      (CHILDREN)
• Increase in disciplinary problems at
  school
• Increase in aggressive behavior
• Depression
• Most severe time of symptoms
  actually immediately after service
  member leaves and when he or she
  returns
   OBSERVATIONS OF
 IMPACT ON THE FAMILY
       (SPOUSE)
• Increased number of visits to medical
  doctor for minor injuries
• Fighting/arguing over small things
• Increase in impulsive behavior (spending,
  eating, substance abuse, pornography)
• Increase in number of affairs
• Jealousy/questions of doubt/suspicion
• Depression
  FOUR PROCESSES THAT
    EFFECT FAMILIES
   DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Grief

• Security

• Family Function

• Stress
     GRIEF AND FAMILIES
     DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Pre-Deployment - Anticipatory Grief “We
  will miss each other!” “What will we miss?”
  and “Why do you have to go again?”
• Deployment - “I miss you!” “I missed
  another…” and “Why did you have to leave
  now?”
• Post-Deployment - “I really missed you!”
  and “What all did I miss?” Also can be
  some anger for what was missed. “You
  were not there when I needed you!”
  GRIEF AND FAMILIES
  DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Everyone is grieving in some way and in
  various stages.
• Family rituals help facilitate healthy
  grieving and allow people to move on toward
  acceptance.
• Healthy communication about what we are
  grieving is important.
• Parents need to join children in play to
  understand their grief.
SECURITY AND FAMILIES
 DURING DEPLOYMENT
• People organize their life around
  significant caregivers
• Emotions are the primary organizer and are
  natural, spontaneous, and focused on
  maintaining our security
• Loss of a significant caregiver causes one
  to be alerted by the emotions and enter
  into a state of disorganization
SECURITY AND FAMILIES
 DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Deployment results in spouses and children
  feeling disorganized and feeling the need
  to reorganize their lives for security
• Redeployment results in spouse and child
  having to reorganize again to accommodate
  returning spouse
• Involves recurring disorganization and
  reorganization
SECURITY AND FAMILIES
 DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Key questions - “What will this do to us?”
  and “Will there be something happen that I
  can’t handle?”
• Previous experiences with deployments
  serve as the template for predicting
  future outcomes and estimating security
  risks during deployment.
• Multiple resources and supportive people in
  life enhance security.
     FAMILY FUNCTION
    DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Families are structured for functional
  purposes to maintain a status quo
• When a spouse deploys, the remaining
  system must accommodate the change in
  functional roles and rules
• Healthy families retain flexibility in rules
  and roles to continue to function
    FAMILY FUNCTION
   DURING DEPLOYMENT
• Families adapt by changing rules and roles
  to share the “load” of the family member’s
  departure
• Changing these rules establishes a new
  status quo that the family will seek to
  maintain
• Redeploying spouse often changes the
  status quo upon re-entering the family and
  insists on returning to the old status quo
