Call for Papers: The Journal of Veterans Studies invites clinicians, researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to submit original research articles, reviews, and case studies dedicated to exploring the multifaceted challenges faced by military and veteran couples dealing with PTSD, as well as innovative interventions and supportive measures designed to enhance their well-being.

Overview: Military service often involves exposure to traumatic events that can leave lasting psychological impacts, particularly in the form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). When PTSD affects service members, it reverberates through their interpersonal relationships, especially within the context of marriage and family life. The experiences of military and veteran couples coping with PTSD are complex and multifaceted, presenting unique challenges that require specialized attention and support.

Understanding the dynamics of PTSD within marital relationships is crucial for improving the overall well-being of military families. PTSD can strain communication, intimacy, and mutual support between partners, leading to increased stress and potential breakdowns in relationship quality. Moreover, the effects of PTSD may vary between partners, influenced by factors such as combat exposure, deployment length, and individual coping strategies. These complexities underscore the need for targeted interventions that address the specific needs of military and veteran couples, promoting resilience and fostering healthier relationships.

Topics of Interest: We welcome original research articles, review papers, clinical studies, and case reports on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Impact of PTSD on marital relationships and family dynamics.
  • Effectiveness of couple-focused therapies and interventions.
  • Communication strategies for couples coping with PTSD.
  • Gender differences in PTSD experiences within military couples.
  • Role of social support networks in mitigating PTSD effects.
  • Long-term outcomes and resilience factors in military and veteran couples.
  • Intersectionality of PTSD with other mental health issues (e.g., depression, anxiety).
  • Innovative approaches in PTSD treatment and support services for military families.
