These are unprecedented times, and all families are having to adapt, change and cope with the stress of living during a pandemic. The “COVID-19 Playbook for Parents” workshop is a unique webinar that focuses on the impact COVID-19 has had on children and their families, both at home and at school.

Parents/caregivers will learn ways to recognize the effects of trauma, anxiety and dysregulation of the nervous system, and understand how this impacts learning and behavior. Participants will learn practical strategies to use at home, such as using a collaborative approach, incorporating mindfulness, teaching self regulation skills, and how to increase intrinsic motivation. Parents will leave feeling empowered and hopeful about being equipped to guide their children through this difficult time.
