The 2022 Military Family Readiness Academy series focuses on individuals’ understanding of social justice and equity, including their own understanding of privilege and oppression.
Courses and panel discussions will equip family service providers with the skills to identify barriers that impact a family’s health and well-being and identify opportunities for social justice advocacy in their work. The Academy series will address the intersections between engaging a social justice mindset as a family service professional and the ability to support the well-being of diverse military families.
2022 Academy Series Offerings:
- Self-Paced Courses
- Course 1 | Introduction to Social Justice Lenses for Family Well-Being
- Course 2 | Family Service Providers: Recognizing and Responding to Inequities
- Course 3 | Social Justice and Military Families
- Live Panel Discussions
- Engagement Opportunities
Three asynchronous courses will offer engaging modules and interaction, with prompts for reflection on this critically important topic. Course delivery will allow working professionals to engage with course content at their convenience. Each course is estimated to take 90 minutes to complete. Live panel discussions supplement the content of the courses and will be most beneficial to those who have completed the courses. We are seeking 1.5 continuing education credits from various credentialing agencies for each course and panel discussion.
