The Road Home: Smoothing the Transition Back From Deployment
by Elaine Gray Dumler
The Road Home helps families in all branches of service transition after their service member returns from deployment. Many military families struggle with both the joys and challenges of the reintegration process. Topics covered include:
Homecoming - beyond the balloons and parties
What do you mean by that?" - Improving communication
"But Dad said I could!" - Tackling discipline while maintaining a united front
"How the heck did my butt get so big?" - Image, sex and intimacy
"Am I normal?" - Adjusting to your new normal
"What do I do now?" - Getting back in the swing of things with family, job and community
"I did not sign up for this!" - Combat Stress, PTSD, wounded warriors, dealing with loss
"You need attention too" - The unique needs of blended families, single service members and extended families
Reunion isn't all about balloons and parties--it just starts there. During your tour of duty things changed... Now it's your job to adjust to those changes, find your family's new normal, and settle back into your life together.
