For many service members with families and children, it can be a difficult balance between responsibilities to their families and to the military. Separation and single parenting can make this even more difficult, by leaving service members and their family members shouldering even more responsibilities than before. During this webinar, Dr. Mixon and Dr. Gillen discuss the emotional and financial impacts of separation and single parenting in the military.

This event is hosted by the Personal Finance and the Family Development concentration areas of the Military Families Learning Network.


MFLN Personal Finance is offering AFC-credentialed participants can earn 1.5 CEUs.   This webinar is also approved for 1.5 general CEUs for FinCert Certified Personal Finance Counselors (CPFC).
