About This Workshop:
The pandemic has shown us that we can’t do anything alone, including serving military families. The resilience and recovery of individuals and communities depends on social connection and working together. The Asset-based Community Recovery Framework challenges us to consider how COVID-19 has disrupted our communities, what has emerged, and what has been revealed by recognizing gifts, fostering connections, and telling stories. This framework is a different disaster recovery model because it is a bottom-up approach. It allows individuals, associations, organizations/non-profits, businesses, and municipalities to think about what role people and communities play moving forward.
Share your ideas and successes with us.
Contribute your voice, experiences, and lessons learned to this workshop! Engage in practicing connection and collaboration while creating a shared resource we can all use in our work with families and address the challenges we face from multiple perspectives.
Through this workshop you can discover the assets and capacities of your community to make our military families more resilient and aid in their recovery after a disaster.
In these workshops we will:
- Practice a multiple-perspective, community approach to building readiness and resilience for ourselves, our organizations, and the people we serve.
- Apply the Asset-based Community Recovery Framework to find ways to better support military family readiness and resilience in the face of complex disasters like the pandemic.
- Design resources we can all use to inform our work with families and address the challenges we face from multiple perspectives.
Brief introductions – Get familiar with our Zoom platform and the facilitators of this workshop.
Discussion of the Asset-based Community Recovery Framework – A brief overview of the key elements of the Asset-based Recovery Framework and the questions we will address in our small group conversations.
Small group conversations – Small breakout groups give participants the opportunity to share what they’ve learned and hear from others in a safe, supportive environment.
Regroup to harvest what was learned in breakout rooms and discuss – Graphic recorder Sherrill Knezel will use hand-drawn images, words and color to capture the key takeaways that emerge from the small group conversations. As each group shares their key takeaways, Sherrill will record them live. The resulting graphic will become the foundation of a resource military families service providers can use to start using elements of asset-based community recovery in their work.
Discussion of the graphic reporting – This discussion will give participants an opportunity to react to the graphic reporting by discussing takeaways that may have been missed, clarifying examples gathered in the small group conversations, and sharing new ideas that may have been sparked by the graphic recording.
