Healthy Children Radio: Military Families (Audio)
Parental wartime deployment can be distressing for children, regardless of their age. These children are at an increased risk for social, emotional, and behavioral problems, especially if there are pre-existing psychological issues in the family. However, by understanding the military family structure and the stressful experiences of parental wartime deployment, all health care providers - both active duty and civilian - can be the front line in caring for U.S. military children and their families.
Developmental and behavioral pediatrician Beth Ellen Davis, MD, FAAP, shares her expert advice on this ever-present problem in our society on the Healthy Children Radio show on RadioMD.
