Intermittent Separation: Exploring the psycho-social impact on dispersed military families
It is increasingly more accessible for Armed Forces families to remain living dispersed from the serving member of their family. Existing data from the tri-service families’ continuous attitudes survey for the last six years suggests that around 24% of families are already living geographically dispersed from the serving member of their family.
This study aimed to explore the psycho-social impact of intermittent separation on dispersed military families. It makes recommendations to indicate what could be done to support dispersed military families.
