Now What?  Helping Children (and Parents) Manage Emotionally during Uncertain Times
October 12, 2021
7:00 pm
Tolland High School Auditorium

As we come through a stretch like no other, adults and children need skills to confront and reduce the negative impacts of anxiety, stress, and depression both at school and home. 

This parent-focused presentation provides a framework of positive, action-based strategies to help children/teens effectively prevent and cope with worry and other big emotions, strategies made all the more relevant by our current environment. Using creativity, connection and energy, parents will learn how to increase flexibility, support the tolerance of uncertainty, and emotionally equip children as we all move forward.
