Parenting and Children's Resilience in Military Families PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Parenting and Children's Resilience in Military Families free pdf This volume focuses on the crucial role of parenting for the current and future generation of US military families. This is the first book to focus strictly on parenting in military families. It's aimed at scholars and practitioners with the goal of highlighting extant scholarship, research gaps, and effective and promising programs, policies, and practices in support of military families. Many years of developmental research has shown the crucial role of parenting in shaping children's adjustment and resilience, and particularly so in stressful contexts. Family stress models suggest - and have shown - that in times of challenge, parenting functions as a key mediator of the impact of stress on children.

About Abigail Gewirtz

Abigail Gewirtz's primary interests are in trauma, resilience, and promoting children's healthy development with two distinct but interrelated research foci: the impact of exposure to traumatic stressors on parenting and child functioning, and the development, testing, and widespread implementation of family-based interventions. She is Principal Investigator on a National Institute of Drug Abuse-funded randomized controlled trial to develop and test a web-enhanced parenting program for National Guard families with parents returning from deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Gewirtz also directs Ambit Network, a SAMHSA/National Child Traumatic Stress Network Community Services and Treatment center focusing on the implementation of evidence-based interventions for traumatized school-aged children and their parents. Other studies currently underway include a study of families exposed to rocket attacks on the Israel-Gaza border, and a randomized preference trial to examine motivational cognitions and parent preferences for delivery format of parenting interventions. Dr. Gewirtz has written and has presented widely at both the local and national level on prevention and intervention for highly stressed children.
