Title

Mental health symptoms and the reintegration difficulty of military couples following deployment: A longitudinal application of the relational turbulence model

Keywords

deployment, difficulty with reintegration, mental health symptoms, military couples, relational turbulence

Abstract

Understanding the factors that predict the reintegration difficulty of military couples during the post deployment transition has important implications for theory, research, and practice. Building on the logic of the relational turbulence model, this paper evaluates the relationship processes of reunion uncertainty and reintegration interference from a partner as mediators of the connection between people’s mental health symptoms and their difficulty with reintegration after deployment
