Families and Friendships
Overview

The stress of deployment often uncovers problems in relationships that existed before, but had gone un-noticed. For example, after a deployment minor irritations that might have been overlooked can blow up into major conflict. If you are having problems in your relationships, you will find this material will help. Take an assessment to get feedback on your relationships or jump into the workshops to learn about various relationship skills. Check out the videos of others who are dealing with relationship problems and explore the e-library for in-depth information.

Assessment

It's not unusual for Service Members to feel lonely when they come home after a deployment, but it's important that you don't cut yourself off from family and friends, especially if you're feeling isolated or alone. No one likes everybody, and not everyone needs to like you: all it takes is one or two people. Don't cut yourself off from the people in your life who care about you. You hurt them when you do, and you also hurt yourself.

The Families and Friendships Assessment, and each of the related assessments below, takes about five minutes to complete; recommendations follow based on your results.
