IMPACT OF MILITARY DEPLOYMENT 2
Impact of Deployment on Military Families with Young Children
The Research Problem
The article delves the issue of children's connection with their parents. As a common
concern in the modern day, deployment of military families has far-reaching consequences
particularly to the ones with young children. The systematic review analyzes the problem in
depth in a way to help the concerned parties to have a detailed view of its consequences.
Literature Review: Current and Relevant
On the question whether the literature review is current and relevant, it is justified to
deduce that the article meets both requirements. Firstly, most of the deductions and supporting
materials are not older than five years from the publication date (2010 onwards). More so, they
are specific on the issue of military families and deployment concerns; therefore, highly relevant.
Research and Theory
With no doubt, the research affirms the concepts of the psychoanalytic theory. This one
examines how childhood experiences and their unconscious desires affect behavior change. In
connection, children suffer after military deployments primarily through their parents' struggle as
they try to reestablish their stable family life.
Explanation of the Research Importance
Evidently and in a precise manner, the article explains the importance of the research. In
particular, it examines the impact of deployment since 9/11 attack. Also, it explores the possible
evidence-based interventions for the affected families. Most importantly, it endeavors to identify
the potential gaps that make it harder to support such families.
