Friday Field Notes banner image: Featuring engaging stories from practitioners about how partnerships with Cooperative Extension help build Community Capacity to support military service men and women and their families.

In this week’s Friday Field Notes, we will continue our exploration of the resources and programming that Military Families Learning Network provides to support Total Force Fitness with our Network Literacy team.

Network Literacy and Total Force Fitness

Network Literacy’s work directly supports social and psychological fitness in their efforts to increase resilience through relationships and networks. Through their programming, Network Literacy helps individuals build the skills they need to grow and maintain their own supportive network. Supportive networks are a key piece of the puzzle when it comes to maintaining social and psychological fitness.

The Resilience Series, a collaboration between Network Literacy, Family Development, and Family Transitions, is a three-part series that examines factors promoting individual, family, and community resilience. The series begins next week, on Tuesday, August 20th, at 11am Eastern Time, with Nurturing Individual Resilience from a Multi-System Developmental Perspective.

As a part of the Building Networks for Resilience learning experience, Network Literacy produced a five-part Working Out Loud for Resilience podcast. In addition to providing more information on Working Out Loud and ways to improve one’s own resilience, in each podcast, listeners are given specific strategies they can incorporate into their daily lives to improve their networks and build resilience.

Finally, keep an eye out this fall for an exciting new podcast series produced by Network Literacy. The podcast will focus on themes that tie together the work of military family service providers across disciplines. It will be a catalyst for conversations that connect us, help us collaborate, and lead to greater impacts for the people we serve.
