Welcome and thank you for your interest in our study. We are conducting a survey of parents who have had a son or daughter deploy to Iraq or Afghanistan. You are vitally important to the health and successful reintegration of our nation’s heroes yet little is known about your experiences with your son or daughter after they have returned from their deployment. Your responses to the following questionnaire will benefit parents like yourself by helping us understand your needs and challenges. The survey takes between 20 and 40 minutes to complete.
Please be aware that your responses will be anonymous though direct quotes from your responses may be used to illustrate or summarize the experiences of parents like yourself.
Because you and your parenting partner may have different perspectives or opinions concerning your service member, we would appreciate if you each complete a separate questionnaire.
The next page contains a consent form describing our study in more detail and asking for your consent to participate. After indicating that you are willing to participate you will be directed to the first page of the study itself.
After you complete the questionnaire, as a token of our appreciation, you will have the option of entering a drawing for one of 10 copies of Courage After Fire by Keith Armstrong, Suzanne Best, & Paula Domenici.
