Polishing our Protective Shields: Exploring Ways to Protect Youth from Violence

The Military Families Learning Network is presenting an upcoming webinar titled: Polishing our Protective Shields: Exploring Ways to Protect Youth from Violence

This 90-minute webinar will focus on the impact of three different types of violence impacting youth including bullying, relationship violence in teens, and school shootings. The facilitator will offer information on trauma-informed approaches to polishing the protective shields of parents and youth in the face of danger and violence, using strategies such as identifying problematic situations, utilizing effective communication skills and emotional regulation, and engaging social support networks. Factors that increase the risk of negative consequences of stress and those that promote recovery and resilience will also be explored.

Given the recent events impacting students in schools and OSD’s commitment to empowering military children to become the best version of themselves, MFLCs are encouraged to attend this webinar.

Although the live webinar has already been held; a recording is available.
