About this Podcast

For many therapists, the first response to sexual issues in couples' therapy is to outsource to a "specialist" in sex therapy. However, Dr. Shelley Green and Dr. Douglas Flemons feel that the therapeutic orientation that they both teach and practice is more than enough to also handle sex therapy cases. This podcast features a dynamic conversation around sex therapy from a brief, systemic perspective and the ways in which this lens can change the focus of sexual problems between couples resulting in positive and lasting results for clients.

About this Podcast
Life is full of transitions and change for all of us, but are especially prominent for our military service members and their families. The transition from civilian to military life when joining the military and then the transition back again after retirement can have its own unique challenges. These particular transitions, especially retirement, can look very different for military service members and their families than those in the civilian world. This podcast features one man's story of his transitional journeys into the military and then out of the military through retirement and the ways in which he navigated through them.

Engaging Across Generations Part I: Unique Mindsets

11:00 am EDT

This is a FREE professional development webinar hosted by the Family Transitions concentration area of the Military Families Learning Network.

People of all ages can work well together, especially when they know and understand the unique strengths each generation has to offer.  All too often the differences between generations, rather than areas of opportunity, shape how people work together.  This two-part webinar series examines ways to move beyond stereotypes and potential conflict to bridge across generations which can increase creativity, problem-solving, and learning.

In part 1 of this webinar series, participants will become familiar with the various generational groups, their unique mindsets, expectations, and work styles. We will discuss what each generational group has in common and consider strategies to enhance working relationships across generations.

  1. Define the characteristics of multiple generations

  2. Explain ways generations are different from and similar to each other

  3. Identify generational preferences for working with others

  4. Explore ways to improve connections across generations

Don't miss Engaging Across Generations Part II: Tools & Techniques on Tuesday, May 9 at 11:00 am Eastern.

A certificate of completion is offered for this session.
