This webinar will review the research literature on optimal child and family development and barriers to this optimal functioning. Drawing from both the civilian and the military literature, the presenters will provide guidance on what sets the stage for successful family functioning, how military life can interrupt these processes, and what families can do to safeguard against risks. It is well documented that military life presents risks to mental and family health.
Presenters for the webinar will be Adrian Blow, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Program Director, Couple and Family Therapy Program, Michigan State University and Hiram Fitzgerald, Ph.D., Associate Provost, University Outreach, University Distinguished Professor, Psychology, Michigan State University.
