    Suggestions for dealing with relocation?

    Advertisements
    When you have to relocate to a different base what are some of the best ways to cope with the move? I feel like this would be very stressful for all involved. Any tips and suggestions are appreciated.

    Your profile said friend or family and you list no branch, so is this for research?

    Moving is always stressful. I cannot offer any advice or support about PCS because I have not moved with the military, but I have lived in 3 different states and moved everything on our own. I would assume moving with the military or on your own is the same, it is what you make of it.

    Cope with what aspect of it?

    Idratherbehiking, Yes and no. I have friends that are in multiple branches of the military (navy, army, and air force) and I talk with their significant others about the unique things they deal with. I am also studying military and trauma counseling in hopes of one day helping individuals and their families cope with the challenges of either being in the military or being a family member of someone in the military. I want to better understand the things that military families have to deal with in order to better help them in the future.

    "Moving is always stressful"

    Thanks AdaraMarie! I would agree that it is what you make it. When you moved, did you hire any sort of moving company or anything? Or did you pack and move everything yourself?

    Coping

    Guynavywife, just the general stress of moving and staying organized through the transition.

    This site has strict rules about researching.

    The reason that question was asked is because of this rule from our TOS:

    - Advertising, researching, and requesting personal information from members is prohibited unless given permission by Staff.

    I know you are new here, so you can see the rest of our TOS here:
    http://www.militarysos.com/forum/con...s-service.html

    We also have a newbies section that you can introduce yourself in if you would like to join our forum and stick around! Here is the thread we recommend all new members read: Everything A Newbie Needs To Know!!! But generally using the forum for research is prohibited.

    Thank you. I did read over the terms and conditions. While I am interested in military counseling I am not conducting research. I joined the group because I genuinely want to interact with people that have similar challenges as my friends. I am sorry if I raised any red flags.
