A School Counseling Approach to Helping Military Families during Deployment

This paper presents an overview, based on the published literature, of the risks and unique challenges that many military families face during the deployment process, a description of the phases of the deployment cycle, and examples of how school counselors can provide prevention and intervention services in order to promote the well being of the whole family. These prevention and intervention examples target children and adolescents as well as their primary care givers. Adlerian approaches to school-based services are incorporated throughout as a way to highlight and promote the strength and resilience of military families.
