DEFM332 - Transition and the Military Family

 

This course is designed to provide students with knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of managing transitions, with a focus on those issues incumbent on the military family. Course topics include change and choice, psychology of the self, interpersonal relations, health, dysfunction, grief, and building a life-career. Particular attention is focused on these topics' application to the military family lifestyle, to include deployment separation, reunion, marriage and family, parenting, military casualty, and life-career. The following questions appear as themes throughout the course: what is transition; what transitions do military families experience; what are the affects on the body, mind, spirit, and interpersonal relationships; what is resilience; and how does one create a plan to strengthen resilience?
