Relocation is a big issue that has profound effects on military families. After receiving Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders, it can be a scramble to get things in order for a family to move. PCS affects all members of a military family, from finding housing to military spouses changing jobs as well. It also affects children in several ways. Relocation can be a disruption of routines and also means switching schools which disrupts friendships and peer groups.
Many organizations are out there to help navigate the effects of relocation and one of the most important is Sesame Street for Military Families. Sesame Street for Military Families is a free, bilingual website with information and resources on a variety of topics with military families in mind. Several of these topics include deployments, homecomings, injuries, grief, self-expression, as well as trauma and community violence.
On April 19, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. ET, Sabrina Huda and Antonio Freitas from Sesame Street for Military Families and the Sesame Street Workshop, will be facilitating a 90-minute webinar on the impact of moving and relocation has on military families. Specifically, this webinar will address potential child concerns and how children respond to these issues in regards to developmental stages. Also, Sabrina and Antonio will highlight the initiatives and resources that Sesame Street for Military Families provide to help military families navigate the ups and downs of relocating.
Participants can also receive FREE CEUs for this event! If you are unable to attend the live event, the webinar will be archived for viewing at your convenience. CEUs will be available for the archived event until April 19, 2021. We hope you can join us for this important webinar!
