Deployment Support from Family and Friends Scale
Deployment Support from Family and Friends
Scale in the Deployment Risk and Resilience Inventory-2
Extent to which an individual perceived emotional sustenance and instrumental assistance from family and friends back home during deployment. Emotional sustenance refers to the extent to which others provide the individual with understanding, companionship, a sense of belonging, and positive self-regard (e.g., feeling cared for by friends and family members, having people to talk to). Instrumental assistance refers to the extent to which the individual receives tangible aid such as help to accomplish tasks and material assistance or resources (e.g., being able to count on people to take care of finances or belongings while deployed).
