Pre-Veteran’s Day talk at WSU looks at challenges for military families
Gabriela Misca, Ph.D., of the University of Worcester in England will speak on “Parenting Under Fire: Risk and Resilience in Parent-Child Functioning in Military and Veteran Families” tonight at Worcester State University.
Misca will look at the unique stressors that affect children of military and veteran parents, which in turn affect their mental health.
The lecture is set for 7-8:30 p.m. in Multipurpose Room 109, Sheehan Residence Hall.
Military family life often revolves around a cycle of deployment and its various stages: pre-deployment, deployment, post-deployment/reintegration, and re-deployment. Research indicates that this type of family life has an impact on resilience and approaches to risk.
