Personal & Work Life Program
The Military and Family Readiness Center (M&FRC) is the focal point for assisting all service members and their families – to include Department of Defense civilians – in easing their adaptation to the military lifestyle and enrichment of their personal and work life.
The M&FRC assists with crisis intervention and customized action-planning by conducting assessments, offering skills development, and providing referrals to agencies both on and off of the installation. P&WL activities are educational in nature and offered in either group or individual settings.
A variety of topics provides customers with the most current, relevant and accurate information. Topics provided are suggestions – not requirements – and cover topics such as interpersonal communication skills, relationship building, maintaining long-distance relationships (during deployment and other separations), etc (see other suggested topics below).
- Child Behavior/Effectively Dealing with Children
- Crisis Assessment/Intervention
- Elder Care
- Family Dynamics/Relationships
- Grief and Loss
- Personal and/or Family Goal Setting
- Team Building
- Time Management
Several offerings aim to facilitate and connect customers to information and agencies that they will encounter throughout their military experience. These include the P&WL Key Spouse Program and P&WL Heart Link Spouse Orientation.
The goal of the Personal and Work Life Program (P&WL) is to increase the effectiveness of everyday living skills, learn to cope with life events and realize one’s personal potential, resulting in increased quality of life and resilience for military members and their families.
