Abstract : The purpose of this effort was to develop a roadmap or plan for systematically targeting Navy research at the most critical family issues and providing long-range guidance for Military family research. A three-pronged approach was utilized to develop the plan. First, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 96 individual from six participants groups to determine a set of research needs perceived as most important to meeting Navy objectives related to families. Second, an extensive review of the literature was conducted to identify existing knowledge pertinent to each research need. Finally, a convergence charting technique was utilized to organize potential research areas into logical sequences of research activities leading toward the attainment of Navy objectives.
