AMARILLO – The Military Families Learning Network’s Military Caregiving program will host a “Professional Boundaries in Action: Lessons from Practice” webinar June 5.
This and other webinars are offered through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service’s Military Program to provide professional development and interactive resources for caregivers who want or need to utilize the training from home, said Andrew Crocker, AgriLife Extension program specialist in gerontology and health, Amarillo.
The one-hour webinar will begin at 10 a.m. and is open to anyone interested, but registration is required. To join the session or for more information, go to https://militaryfamilieslearningnetwork.org/event/30360/.
“There is always a risk that boundaries and roles can become blurred and uncertain in the work of caregivers,” said Rachel Brauner, program coordinator with the agency’s Texas Military Program in College Station. “The pressures of time and circumstance can create challenges. Practical lessons drawn from experience can help guide the way for appropriate and effective effort. In this webinar, professionals with past and current military experience share insights and advice through case studies and exercises.”
Presenters include Jennifer Stewart, deputy branch head and family care manager of the Exceptional Family Members Program Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps, and Patricia Smith, program manager with the U.S. Navy Family Readiness Program.
The MFLN Military Caregiving concentration will apply for continuing education credit from the University of Texas-Austin Steve Hicks School of Social Work for credentialed and licensed professionals. The program also has been submitted to the Commission for Case Manager Certification for approval to provide board-certified case managers with one clock hour.
Certificates of completion will be available for participants interested in receiving training hours.
