The 2022 Military Family Readiness Academy series has been designed to encourage service providers and professionals working with military families to view social justice as a pathway to family well-being. Courses and panel discussions will equip family service providers with the skills to identify barriers that impact a family’s health and well-being and identify opportunities for social justice advocacy in their work. The series will address the intersections between engaging a social justice mindset as a family service professional and the ability to support the well-being of diverse military families.
There are three asynchronous courses which are sequential and best experienced in order. To supplement these courses, please make plans to attend the live events scheduled throughout June 2022. Each course and live event will offer continuing education credit from various credentialing agencies.
