ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
For many service members with families and children, it can be a difficult balance between responsibilities to their families and to the military. Separation and single parenting can make this even more difficult, by leaving service members and their family members shouldering even more responsibilities than before. During this webinar, Dr. Mixon and Dr. Gillen discuss the emotional and financial impacts of separation and single parenting in the military.
