Military Dissertation Study - Civilian Husbands

My name is Thomas Watson, LPC, NCC and I am completing my doctoral
dissertation in Counselor Education & Supervision from the Georgia School of
Professional Psychology at Argosy University in Atlanta, GA.  I grew up in a
career military family and currently work through a contractor with military
personnel and their families.

My IRB-approved, qualitative dissertation research focuses on the experience
of civilian husbands married to military women who have deployed.  The scant
literature, thus far, discusses issues including - but not limited to -
divorce rates, gender expectations, job portability, adaptation to military
culture  and childcare during deployments.  My goal, through
phenomenological inquiry, is to determine from what additional resources
civilian husbands might benefit while their wives are deployed overseas.

If there are civilian husbands among us on the list serve that have had the
experiences listed below and would like to participate in my study, I would
be very grateful.  If any of you know of individuals that might have had the
experiences listed below and think that the persons would like to
participate in the study, please feel free to forward them my contact
information in order for me to provide more details about the study.

"A task for future research is to identify the unique challenges faced by
the civilian husbands of military wives."  Karney & Crown (2007)

Thank you for taking the time to review my request.

Participant Experiences
1.  Civilian husbands with no current or prior military service experience
who have been married to military wives of any branch of the U.S. Armed
Services for at least five (5) years - any rank or status (i.e.,
Active-Duty, Reserve Forces, National Guard).

2.  There is at least one child under the age of 18 living in the household.

3.  There has been at least one deployment (mobilization) or duty order out
of the United States by the military wife (without her family) lasting at
least six months.

4.  There has been at least one family relocation because of the military
wife's job (i.e., transfer orders).
