The Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) Family Development team aims to provide professionals with online resources, information, and continuing education opportunities that supports work with military families. Our focus connects largely to family strengthening, family violence prevention, treatment, and intervention. We welcome you to explore and connect with us on this online community and are excited about our new web pages designed to assist with this purpose.
Included in Our New Webpages
This webpage offers information surrounding upcoming and archived webinars. We provide links allowing for easy access to the webinars along with additional information such as speaker information and current research on webinar topics. Most of the upcoming webinars we provide, offer National Association of Social Workers (NASW) continuing education units (CEU’s). Each webinar topic focuses on the important work that service professionals do with military families.
This webpage houses links to books, journal articles, websites and videos that can be useful for service professionals working with military families. We’ve also included an archived list of our weekly “Resource Discovery” themed blog posts that provide in depth descriptions of featured resources.
Meet Our Team
This webpage offers a chance for you to learn about the MFLN Family Development team members and provides links to team member contact information and professional history. We’ve also provided an “Ask an Expert” section where participants can have questions answered by one of our MFLN Family Development team members.
What’s to Come
We look forward to developing an online venue for professionals working with military families to provide resources, ideas and suggestions in our “Collaboration” webpage. Until then, feel free to contact the MFLN Family Development team (http://blogs.extension.org/militaryfamilies/family-development/meet-our-team/) with suggestions for how we can make this online community more effective for your professional needs.
