Chronic Illness: Empowering Families in the Journey - Part 1

Evaluation/CEUs: https://vte.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2lfvK2p2CXh0vwp

This is a FREE professional development webinar hosted by MFLN Family Transitions, Family Development, Military Caregiving, and Nutrition and Wellness.

The MFLN's Family Development, Family Transitions, Military Caregiving, and Nutrition & Wellness offer this collaborative two-part webinar for military family service professionals on chronic illness. During Part 1 participants will discuss the stressors associated with chronic illness and its impact on health and wellness of individuals and families; explore the ways families influence the health and wellbeing of each other (i.e. family routines, nutrition, dynamics, interpersonal communication, support, etc.); and learn effective strategies for interdisciplinary collaboration among service providers (mental health clinicians, early interventionists, dietitians, family advocates, medical doctors, etc.) when working with families struggling with chronic illness.  Participants will engage in case study discussions to identify and assess the family development, transitions, caregiving, and nutrition/wellness perspectives of chronic illness issues within military families. Strategies, tools, and resources will be shared.
