The Military Projects announce new and continued funding for multiple programs to design and implement evaluation studies, develop common reporting metrics, and create research informed training materials. These projects support the military Family Programs’ goal to sustain the well-being and readiness of military service members and their families, in all branches worldwide. Details on each are below.

Army Family Advocacy Program

The Military Projects within the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research were recently awarded new funding by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, United States Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Defense under Agreement No. 2011-48581-31017 to develop Army Family Advocacy Program (FAP) prevention and educational materials and design and implement evaluation protocols for selected programs.

Prevention campaign materials will be developed for Army Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Child Abuse Prevention Month, which are sponsored Army-wide. A self-guided training module on the Transitional Compensation Program will be developed to inform commanders about this important benefit program for victims of abuse. Program evaluation will be underway for the New Parent Support Program (NPSP) Home Visitation program and the Victim Advocacy Program.

Leidy, Enroth, and Thomas

This is an annual renewal of work begun more than twenty years ago for the Army Family Advocacy Program which provides programs for Army families to thrive in challenging situations such as deployment and frequent relocation. The program also provides prevention education and intervention for child and domestic/partner abuse and offers home visitation services to Army families worldwide to promote positive parenting and reduce stress. This work will be carried out between September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013 and will be led by Brian Leidy, Cindy Enroth, and Marney Thomas.
