Narrating COVID-19 Deployment with Others Serving in the military can be one of the most rewarding and yet stressful experiences in life. Over the last several months, we have seen challenges with the onset of COVID-19 and its numerous impacts on our lives and families. You may be trying to juggle many roles, stressors, and complicated circumstances and/or you may just be trying to figure out how to communicate about your experiences on the COVID-19 frontline. We sometimes miss the opportunity to make sense of our experiences with others, often keeping the difficulties to ourselves in favor of sharing the struggles and successes. We believe that serving your country can be enhanced by making sense of that experience in community with others. Thus, you are invited to participate in a free, three-week Military Narrative Defense: Storytelling Empowered Teams (MiND:SET) workshop designed for state-activated military to reflect upon and talk with others about their deployment stories, particularly as it pertains to COVID-19. Each week, we will meet together digitally for 90 minutes in small groups to talk about the meaning of your COVID-19 state active duty service. These sessions will be held online through Zoom. This workshop is part of a research study we are conducting through the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Department of Communication Studies research lab Narrative Nebraska. Each participant will receive a $50 gift card upon completion of the study! If you would like to participate, please contactDr. Jody Koenig Kellas(firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Cody Hollist (email@example.com), whose research team will contact you about scheduling your meeting sessions. We look forward to seeing you there!
