Description: As we come through a year like no other, adults need strategies and skills to help children and adolescents confront and reduce the negative impacts of anxiety, stress, and depression both at school and home. Patterns that existed before the pandemic have been exacerbated, and interrupting and preventing these patterns is vital as we move forward. Parents/guardians will learn how to increase flexibility, support the tolerance of uncertainty, and emotionally and preventatively equip themselves and those they love as we all emerge from our CoViD cocoons to a new normal.
