About this Episode
This recording is of Jennifer Rea’s blog, Collaboration: Breaking Down Silos and Building Networks to Support Military Families.
As military service professionals we must re-think the way we work with Servicemembers and families. No single individual, agency, or community is capable of addressing all military family life matters alone. Becoming a collaborative professional, organization, and agency means breaking down siloes and building networks. Specifically, taking a “collaborative stance” involves bringing together all stakeholders to share voices and expertise—with the common goal of increasing outreach to support the well-being of military families.
Jennifer Rea, PhD is a military spouse to an Active Duty Marine. Jenny consults with the MFLN Family Transitions team to support professional development for military family service providers.
