Abstract

The impact of separation from a parent is recognized as a crucial factor in a child's development. Forced military separations also lead to clinically observable reactions in children. This long-term loss of the father is considered a developmental interference resulting in a disturbance in the typical unfolding of the child's personality. Important treatment considerations flow from understanding the impact this has on the child.
