This six-week course will help pastors, church leaders, community leaders, friends, family and neighbors learn about military family experiences and discuss ways to connect with military families in their community. This course is for anyone who wants to support families of service members! Join us as we explore the common challenges that military families face, and propose ways to help build connections between military families and your community. It’s all about finding ways to build bridges to support those who serve our country! Here’s an overview of what we will discuss during our time together: Week One: Intro to the Workshop & Intro to Military Culture . Week Two: Supporting Military Families During Relocation. Week Three: Supporting Military Families During Deployment/Geographical Separation. Week Four: Supporting Military Children and Teens. Week Five: Supporting Military Marriages . Week Six: Awareness of Mental Health Challenges. While it is not required for the course, it is highly recommended that students have "Serving Military Families" (second edition) by Blaisure, Seathoff-Wells, Pereira, Wadsworth, Dombro. This course is eligible for 2.0 CEU. ***This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.***
