About This Webinar:

Following their return home from deployment, military couples experience a wide variety of changes in their relationship.  This webinar will explore the findings of an 8-month longitudinal study of 555 military couples during the reintegration period.  Based on these findings, recommendations for prevention and intervention services designed to help military couples negotiate relationship changes across the post-deployment transition will be discussed.

During this webinar, participants will:

  • Identify the major domains of relationship changes military couples experience during the post-deployment period.
  • Understand the valence of the relationship changes military couples experience during reintegration (positive, negative, and neutral).
  • Describe the trajectories of positive, negative, and neutral relationship changes military couples experience over time during the post-deployment period.
  • Evaluate recommendations for prevention and intervention services designed to help military couples negotiate relationship changes across the post-deployment transition.
