Health, Anxiety and Supporting Children in a Coronavirus World

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, families are struggling to adjust to the new normal. Helping children feel safe, keeping up with schoolwork, and keeping them entertained is no easy task. As adults are the most powerful role models children have, participants in this workshop will learn how to balance talking to children about the seriousness of the pandemic, while maintaining a calm and consistent presence in their household and/or workplace (school, daycare, etc.) to reduce anxiety.

Attendees Will Learn

-Learn how to talk to children about the coronavirus in an age-appropriate way
-Teach children necessary skills to cope with anxiety, stress, grief and loss
-Learn concrete strategies for managing family life in quarantine
