Home | News | NMSU’s Military Family Communication Project Seeks Participants
The Military Family Study team at New Mexico State University is seeking non-active duty veterans and their families who were present before and after deployment. Their research focuses on developing practical intervention skills that veterans and families can use to reconnect and improve family communication and health.

NMSU’s Military Family Communication Project Seeks Participants

The New Mexico State University Military Family Communication Project spanning the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Business was formed in 2013.

The project is currently focused on post deployment reintegration and aims to develop programs to support military family members trying to reconnect with each other and their communities.

The project is seeking non-active duty veterans and their families who were present before and after deployment to participate in three family sessions to talk about their experiences with deployment and the return of a family member.

“I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of NMSU’s Military Family Communication Research team for over five years,” said Communication

Studies Professor Jeanne Flora. “We are a team of faculty and staff from across the university who joined together with the common goal of learning about and supporting military families who are reintegrating post-deployment.”

The research focuses on developing practical intervention skills that veterans and families can use to reconnect and improve family communication and health.

“Our research has truly been guided by families themselves, who have stressed to us the impact that deployment has on the whole family and the value of supportive, understanding relationships,” said Flora.

Participants will receive $100 for joining the study. For more information on the project contact Tim Ketelaar at 575- 646-1833 or ketelaar@nmsu.edu
