Military REACH: Utilizing Family Research to Inform Practice
January 23, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm ESTFree
About This Webinar
The purpose of Military REACH is to bridge the gap between military family research and practice. During this webinar, Dr. Mallory Lucier-Greer (REACH PI) and Dr. Catherine Walker O’Neal (REACH Co-I) will describe how their team translates research into practical applications, and then ensures that this research is accessible via a publicly available online library. Participants will learn how the REACH team critically evaluates and synthesizes research on topics related to family support, resilience, and readiness. This allows military families and helping professionals to gauge the quality of research based on three primary standards: credibility, contribution, and clarity. Participants will also learn about the products that the REACH team provides on their website (https://www.militaryreach.auburn.edu), including brief research summaries and extensive literature reviews, both filled with action-oriented implications to be used by military families, direct service helping professionals, and policy makers.
