Throughout the past few years, service professionals have been faced with many challenges but through resiliency and change, have continued to provide services to military families. This webinar discusses how to assess our progress during these trying times by considering the following:
Mental health challenges when delivering services
Strategies we reused to remain resilient
New strategies we implemented to boost our resilience
Specific changes we made to our approach as a service provider
Lessons learned that can become “best practices” for life
In this upcoming webinar, we will learn to:
Assess how resilient we were before the pandemic.
Identify what kept us resilient.
Recognize what we can do to help ourselves and clients to remain resilient as the next year unfolds despite pandemic related challenges.
