Deployed: The Survival Guide for Families at War {Review}...

Dr. Stanley Hall is a marriage and family therapist who has worked with military members suffering from PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury.  In his recently published book, Deployed: The Survival Guide for Families at War, Dr. Hall offers a hybrid of marriage and family counseling research and tips as it specifically applies to active duty military members and their families.

I found this book to be beneficial to the military family because it discusses basic marriage and family issues, such as communication and parenting, using examples that military families can relate to.  While I didn't agree with some of his opinions or advice, Dr. Hall seems to understand the struggles that military families face.  Indeed, his education and experience with the military allows Deployed to have much more depth than many other books that are written for military families.

There's no pink camo or tongue-in-cheek witticisms in Deployed: The Survival Guide for Families at War.  However, if you're looking for a no-frills book about being married in the military, this is it.
