Engaging Military Family Support Professionals through Virtual Learning Events

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Through the Military Families Learning Network, a series of innovative virtual learning events (VLEs) were implemented in fall 2015 focusing on actively engaging participants. Over the course of three highly interactive webinars, military family support professionals learned and shared ideas on the topics of 1) new strategies for engaging families, 2) cultural competence, and 3) compassion fatigue. The webinars featured case studies and practitioner panels to highlight issues and lessons. In addition, the webinars were integrated with a series of podcasts focusing on mindfulness and its relationship to each of the VLE themes. In this session, best practices are shared in context of planning, implementation and evaluation.
