Abstract

Current research focuses primarily on the impact of deployment on the soldier, without taking into account the soldier’s family (Brown, 2013). As a result, many children, partners, and family members struggle with deployment related changes in the family structure yet have few resources. Filial play therapy offers a unique strategy for assisting the entire family system. This article discusses the problems experienced by families of deployed soldiers with children, describes filial play therapy as a strategy, and offers a case study to aid counselors in the implementation of strategies.
