Having worked through Stages 1 and 2 during the Pre-deployment period, you will know be dealing with
Stages 3 and 4.
Stage 3: Emotional Disorganization
(first 6 weeks after departure)
Actual deployment, no matter how prepared families are, still comes as a shock. For the loved one at home, an initial sense of relief from the tension of preparing for deployment is followed by a feeling of being overwhelmed. The CAF member may feel lonely and frustrated at being far away from day to day living. This can be a time to gather strength for the changes to come.
Stage 4: Recovery and Stabilization
(occurs between Stage 3 & 5)
At some point, the partner at home may realize, “Hey I’m doing OK.” Each successful experience builds feelings of confidence. New sources of support are cultivated through friends, work, and community. New freedoms, as well as responsibilities, come from being alone. The CAF member is also settling into routines on the deployment, and patterns of communication with home.
