Helping Kids Find Safety in Challenging Times

Life feels upside down for everyone right now, especially kids. As a result of the pandemic, they are missing the regular structure of daily life and lost social connection, all while grappling with the sights and sounds of racial injustice. How do we respond to our kids who may be feeling scared, angry, lonely, or anxious? How can we help our kids understand their feelings?

Join us at 9 pm ET, July 20th, for a conversation with Dr. Lawrence J. Cohen, author of Playful Parenting and The Opposite of Worry. Using the latest research along with stories from his work as a psychologist specializing in play therapy, Dr. Cohen will guide parents to help bolster their children's resilience, curiosity, and confidence in the face of uncertainty.

Your enrollment includes access to video recording, an audio version to listen to podcast style, and handouts.
