In this episode, our guest Dr. Jessica Strong describes why having a clear understanding of the unique experiences of women's combat deployment and other military experiences can inform social work practice, policy, and advocacy efforts. Our guest discusses how gender serves as a powerful context for how women talk about their combat experience, for exacerbating an already stressful experience, and for informing women's reintegration following deployment.

Jessica D. Strong, PhD, LMSW, is an applied research analyst consultant with Blue Star Families, a nonprofit organization dedicated to military families, and a lecturer at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Her research focuses on military service members, veterans, and their families. She is also an active duty Army spouse.
