Combat injury is a life-altering event that impacts not just the service member but his/her family and children. The affected population is significant in number and in terms of the unique challenges encountered from injury to home. These include the short-term disruptions of individual and family routines and sense of safety, to longer-term issues around parenting and family health. The resources below, developed by the Center for the Study of Traumatic Stress, include principles of caring for combat injured families and their children, elements of effective injury communication, and a fact sheet for families on communicating with children about parental injury. All materials are in the public domain and may be downloaded and shared with colleagues and/or families.
