VLE Session #2: Challenges Facing Families in Crisis

Join the OneOp Military Caregiving team as we focus on learning new skills and strategies for improved communication in times of crisis in the second session of our three-part Virtual Learning Event (VLE) beginning at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, October 19.

In session two of the VLE entitled, Challenges Facing Families in Crisis, we will address some of the unique challenges military families face and examine ways to support them. Throughout this event, our speaker, Michelle Lewis MSW will focus on risk factors that increase military families’ vulnerability during crisis, resources for military families in crisis, as well as ways mental health concerns increase challenges for military families.

The VLE is centered on the theme of Sensitive Topics in Caregiving: Tough Questions and Complex Answers. Our goal with this VLE is to address military family service providers’ tough questions with our expert presenters’ complex answers.

We hope you join us for the second session of the 2016 VLE, October 19th. To learn more about this VLE and the other sessions, click on 2016 OneOp Military Caregiving VLE.
