Abstract:

This report helps Army Family Support Group FSG leaders - particularly in rapid deployment units - start and operate FSGs, by providing them the best information from Army research, family support professionals, and experienced FSG leaders. Although expert judgment has been exercised in the selection and presentation of available materials, the ideas here are only suggested courses of action. Individual FSGs are quite different from one another, and most of these ideas have not been subjected to rigorous evaluations. The topics covered include 1 what FSGs are expected to accomplish, 2 suggestions for starting or re-energizing an FSG, 3 relevant Army Regulations, and 4 sources of additional help in operating the FSG or for assisting FSG members.
