Faculty psychologists to study effects of deployment on military families’ lives

A new study, being conducted by Adam D. Brown, PhD and Kim T. Ferguson, PhD, psychologists at Sarah Lawrence, aims to examine whether families that know more about the events that took place in each other’s lives during deployment will exhibit better psychological and behavioral wellbeing. Based on findings from studies of non-military families, that the researchers reviewed extensively, Brown and Ferguson say that although efforts are being made to address the psychological challenges facing military families there is a major gap in understanding how families talk to each other about the time that they were separated. Like other programs aimed at teaching skills to ease the transition to civilian life, Brown and Ferguson believe their data will inform the development of programs to help guide family conversations around this issue.
