    This workshop will assist agencies and providers interested in working with the military and Veteran family community by sharing foundational information and best practices. The session will offer a review of the needs of children and families in the military and Veteran communities, review the unique challenges and resiliencies for them, and outline strategies for outreach and partnership to engage in access to care. Dr. Mayer Bellehsen and Dr. Valentina Stoycheva will discuss working with military and Veteran families from the initial assessment, to identifying individual and family challenges, to engaging military and Veteran families in novel treatment and resilience-building modalities.
