Evolving Nature of the Military Family

Week 1: Evolving Nature of the Military Family

Family: A simple concept, one might think. However, family can take on many meanings and definitions. Think back to the first course in this specialization and how military families were defined. Throughout history, the military family was predominately the enlisted personnel, spouses, and their children. But the evolving nature of society has impacted the composition of the military family. Consider the ways in which the composition of a military family has changed. Now, take that evolving composition and think about how survival tools for military families may also need to evolve to be effective.

This week, you examine the evolving nature of the military family and how to support new families entering the military life.

  • Analyze ways to support the evolving military family
