The Health Departments in Concord, Bedford, and Carlisle, in collaboration with the Bedford Public Schools Counseling Department and Center for Parents and Teachers, offer a free parent education program: Now What? Helping Families Manage Emotionally During Uncertain Times! an online webinar presented by nationally renowned author, speaker, and therapist Lynn Lyons, LICSW.
Children and teens were struggling with increasing rates of anxiety and depression prior to 2020, and this past year didn’t help.
Parents and caregivers need strategies to help children (and themselves!) manage the uncertainty of our current environment as we recover and move forward.
This presentation describes the skills needed for emotional management including how to increase flexibility, tolerate uncertainty, communicate effectively and replace catastrophic thinking with problem-solving.
