Preserving Childhood in 2020: Stress and Resiliency in Children

This session looks at how our lives are looking much different due to the pandemic and natural disasters that have put even more strain on our everyday stressors. Children are experiencing this weirdness as well, which begs the question, “How can we protect our children and their childhood when there is so much uncertainty and unrest?” 

Stress, trauma and resiliency in childhood and how we can support our children’s (and our own) emotional health will all be touched on during this workshop. 

Sessions are available on Dec. 5, 12 and 19 from 10 to 11 a.m.
