Reconnecting with Nature: Health and Well-Being for Military Communities
August 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
About This Webinar:
Though the therapeutic benefits of connection with nature are known by some, military communities may not be aware of the health and well-being benefits that can accrue via time spent outdoors. This webinar provides practical information on how military family practitioners can aid their clients in accessing and experiencing the personal and community resilience enhancing attributes of an ecological prescription—EcoRx.
Understand the different layers and modalities of nature-based interventions and applications toward health and well-being.
Become familiar with opportunities within existing DoD installations and surrounding communities for military family resilience-enhancing EcoRx.
Demonstrate comprehension of the relationship between EcoRx, military family health and well-being, and community capacity.
