grief and families during deployment
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 deployment79
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
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 deployment81
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 deployment82
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
FAMILY FUNCTIONDURING 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 deployment84
FAMILY FUNCTIONDURING 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
family function during deployment85
FAMILY FUNCTIONDURING DEPLOYMENT
  • Families must learn that change brings stress, even the good change of reunion.
  • Families need to be intentional about what will change with deployment and how to change roles and rules after reunion.
  • Families should aim to be flexible and expect it to take time for the family function to resume to “normal” after reunion.
