Stages of Service Separation
Variations on the cycle
Understanding is the first step to change. Once you realise why you feel the way you do, the power of these emotions are frequently dissipated. We are all different, and our experiences of this cycle will vary and our emotional cycles are unlikely to fit in with Ships' programmes. Short deployments, especially when they are frequent, can be especially unsettling if they are not approached constructively. However longer deployments, if communication is unreliable, can also be problematic and require a greater level of renegotiation on return.
