Anchored. Podcast Episode 8 - Silent Strength: Exploring the Impacts of Chronic Illness

7:00 am EDT

About this Podcast
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about half of all adults in 2012 had one or more chronic health condition. Further statistics show that one in four adults had two or more chronic health conditions. These alarming numbers reflect the need for conversation and support surrounding chronic illness. While many people only think of the physical impacts of chronic illness, there is a psychological component that can be just as strong. This podcast will explore common stressors associated with chronic illness, address harmful myths and stigmas associated with individuals and families struggling with chronic illness, and discuss helpful ways to support those affected.

Anchored. is MFLN Family Development's podcast created to support and inspire those connected to military families. Each episode focuses on real life struggles and topic areas that many families encounter. We invite you to sit back, relax, and get Anchored. with us!

We anticipate being able to give 1.0 CEU for Social Workers, Professional Counselors, and Marriage and Family Therapists through the University of Texas at Austin School of Social Work to meet continuing education requirements. CEUs will be available in the Summer of 2017.
