Welcome to the July edition of MFLN “Network News”! This month we are pleased to introduce you to several blog and video series developed by the MFLN concentration areas that feature practitioner perspectives.
Field Talk is a monthly blog post by the Family Development – Early Intervention team sharing the voices of early childhood providers who serve or have served military families of young children with disabilities (birth to 5 years old).
Friday Field Notes is a blog series by the MFLN Community Capacity Building concentration area. Launched in April 2016, Friday Field Notes presents first-person accounts of how cooperative extension and the land grant universities are helping to build the capacity of communities to enhance the resilience and well-being of military service men and women and their families. Visit the MFLN blog each Friday to catch the latest developments from the field!
Professionals Helping Professionals is a video series produced by the Military Caregiving concentration area. This 16-video YouTube series features interviews with military service providers and highlights tips, strategies, and advice on working with wounded service members and their family caregivers.
Coming soon! Later this year, the Military Caregiving concentration area will release a second video series highlighting practitioner perspectives on caregiving for those with special needs. Stay tuned for the official launch!
