We’re All in This Together: Part Two
Resources to Help Children, Teens, and Families Cope During Stressful Times
With Christine Linnehan, MS, LCPC, BC-DMT, FT—Riverview Counseling
and Aleksandra Townsend, RYT 500, Teacher of Mindfulness, Yoga and Pilates—Spiral Tree Yoga
How are our young people doing? The second webinar in our series focuses on strategies for bolstering resilience in children and teens, ways to promote “protective factors,” how to help young people cope with change and uncertainty, addressing areas of distress, signs of anxiety and depression, when to consult with a pediatrician or mental health professional, and what to keep in mind if you have to wait weeks to see one. Join us for tips, tools, and exercises you can do at home with your family. Take away a resource list of books, videos, and apps that can help children, teens, and families handle stress in some different ways as individuals and as a family. Learn about the power of the breath, techniques and exercises for calming, and simple activities that are easy to practice for children and adults alike. Questions are welcome. Email them to Lucy Norvell, Coordinator of Programming and Communications, ljnorvell [at] scarboroughlibrary.org, before the talk or chat them during the Q & A to follow the presentations.
