Listening Session: Working Together in Addressing Sensitive TopicsDate: August 10, 2016Time: 11:00 a.m. EasternThe MFLN Military Caregiving concentration would like to invite you to join us at 11:00 a.m. ET, August 10, 2016 for a Listening Session entitled, Working Together in Addressing Sensitive Topics. Yep, you read that right…Listening Session. The session will offer an opportunity for your voice to be heard and for you to actively communicate your client concerns with fellow peers and colleagues.Often caregivers find it difficult to discuss sensitive topics such as finances, asking for help, intimacy, mental health and other topics with military service providers. During the listening session you will have a chance to identify specific sensitive topics that can be found within your field, as well as challenges you face when communicating these sensitive topics. The session will briefly introduce the importance of interpersonal relationships and its effects on varying adult learning styles, followed by an in-depth, engaged session from you, the service provider.The information we gather from this listening session will set the stage for our Military Caregiving concentration’s three-part Virtual Learning Event (VLE), held this fall on Communicating Sensitive Topics: A Service providers Approach to Working with Caregivers. Be ready to share your sensitive topics, case studies, scenarios and questions with colleagues on August 10th in similar special healthcare disciplines. Certificate of CompletionThe MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will offer a certificate of completion following the webinar.Interested in Joining the Webinar?To join the webinar, simply click on Listening Session: Working Together in Addressing Sensitive Topics. The webinar is hosted by the Department of Defense APAN system, but is open to the public.If you cannot connect to the APAN site, an alternative viewing of this presentation will be running on Ustream.
