Medical Resources- Strong Foundations in Pediatric Care: Promoting Resiliency in Military Families is a collection of materials created for the health care professional working with military families with very young children who may be experiencing significant deployment related challenges. These challenges can affect the health and wellbeing of the children in your care. As a highly respected and valued resource for parents, what you communicate significantly impacts how they cope and, ultimately, how they help their children through stressful situations. ZERO TO THREE has worked closely with medical professionals to develop these resources to determine what a family’s needs are, and resources to provide to families coping with deployment, reunification, injury, or the loss of a parent.
