By Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhDCreative Commons Licensing [Flickr, Double Dedication, April 30, 2010] retrieved on September 8, 2015Following up on our blogs examining relationships and communication during deployment and communication prior to and during deployment, today’s blog focuses on attachment styles and the influence of avoidant attachment styles on challenges to the relationship during deployment. Further, research conducted by Borelli and colleagues  offers a word of caution when counseling spouses of military members who are experiencing stress in the relationship during deployment.Using attachment theory, the researchers studied non-deployed spouses (NDS) responses to challenges in their marital relationship during deployment. Attachment theory, as developed by Bowlby, posits that infants who received a consistent emotional response from their caregiver when the infant expressed an emotional need would develop a secure attachment — a belief that others would be available to respond to attachment related needs such as comfort, protection, or acceptance. Infants who were rejected or ignored by their caregiver would learn to avoid thoughts and feelings related to emotional needs of comforting or protection.Borelli and colleagues queried 45 female spouses of military members prior to and during deployment . Service members were primarily active duty military (91%), had completed at least one previous deployment (67%), and served in a variety of capacities such as on-base support (31%), infantry (21%), special operations (11%), and other support occupations. Participant assessments occurred 2 weeks prior to the military members deployment, 2 weeks after their departure, and 2 weeks following their spouse’s return. Attachment style was assessed using the Experience of Close Relationships Revised (ECR-R) scale measuring avoidance and anxiety in romantic relationships. Thoughts and feelings related to the relationship and deployment were examined by recording expressions of anxiety. “Savoring” exercises were conducted by the researchers to measure emotions associated with a personal experience (a positive memory not shared), and a relational experience (a memory when they felt especially cared for, accepted or protected). Subjective emotions (affective valence, arousal, control and dominance) were measured immediately following savoring exercises designed for this study.Results of the study indicated that relationship satisfaction decreased following deployment. Attachment avoidance was positively correlated with self-reported anxiety following the reunion savoring exercise. The savoring exercises post-deployment were more difficult than prior to deployment, and participants reported a negative mood following post-deployment savoring tasks.As a mental health clinician, considering attachment style may be helpful when working with non-deployed spouses of military members who are facing a deployment or have recently been deployed. Clients with an avoidant attachment style may benefit from exercises that encourage self-reflection focusing on attachment related feelings. However, clinicians should engage in such work prior to deployment, rather than during or after deployment, when facing feelings could cause even more distress.References Borelli, J. L., Sbarra, D.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was mandated to turn in several firearms last month in compliance to a domestic case involving his longtime girlfriend, Candace Williams, according to Justin Fenton and Jeff Zriebiec of the Baltimore Sun.“The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they [Suggs and Williams] are resolving their issues,” Suggs’ attorney Warren Alperstein told the Sun Thursday. “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”Baltimore County Circuit Court records show that Suggs filed a custody complaint against Williams on Nov. 19. There was a report filed by Williams shortly afterwards, according to Alperstein. Baltimore County police were called to the home Suggs on Nov. 21, but no reports were taken.Alperstein expects for all domestic-related issues to be resolved in a court hearing to be held next week.The Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations, Kevin Byrne, said that the team is aware of Suggs’ off the field situation, but did not wish to release any comments on the matter. Suggs also chose not to comment.Charles E. Brooks, Williams’ attorney, also refused to comment when the Baltimore Sun reached him at his home Thursday night.Suggs and Williams have had a rocky relationship that dates back to 2009. Williams, who is the mother of Suggs two children and former fiancée, alleged in court documents in December 2009 that Suggs knocked her down and spilled bleach on her after an argument over game-day tickets.The detailed complaint alleged that Suggs threw a soap dispenser at her head, hit her in the chest with his hand, and held a bottle of bleach over her and their son.Williams filed a protective order against the Ravens veteran and was granted a temporary protective order, but she withdrew the order a month later in an attempt to reconcile. Suggs was not investigated or charged with a crime involving this incident.Suggs handing over the guns has come to light after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins last week after the two were going through domestic issues. He then proceeded to the Chiefs’ practice facility and committed suicide in front of head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.Belcher was the legal handgun owner of the weapon used in the killings.Suggs will attempt to play this week against the Washington Redskins after tearing his right biceps in Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He returned to the practice field Thursday and has vowed to continue to play through the injury in order to help the team clinch the AFC North title.
