Dr. Monica Escamilla, Family Psychologist at Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center in San Antonio, Texas, discusses different aspects of co-parenting with a wounded warrior and the challenges that parents may face. She answers questions like:
- How it can impact the children in the home?
- What can make it worse?
