Other Resources

Many resources are available for community members and civilian practitioners who interact with or counsel military families. The Military Family Research Institute has identified a number of them that may provide particularly useful information on various topics. Immediately below are two specific evidence-based resources developed, at least in part, by MFRI. Following them are other resources, arranged by audience category.

Serving Military Families in the 21st Century

The new edition textbook introduces readers to the challenges faced, and resilience shown, by military families. Available in hardcover and paperback from Routledge Academic, it includes personal stories from all branches and ranks of the military and those who work with military personnel, bringing their experiences to life. It also presents a review of the latest research, theories, policies, and programs to better prepare readers for working with military families. Authors of the text include Karen Rose Blaisure, Tara Saathoff-Wells, Angela Pereira, Amy Laura Dombro and Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth, director of the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University.
