Welcome to our first newsletter!
Dear Resilient Community,
Though we are dismayed to be reaching out under such circumstances, we are also grateful for this opportunity to connect with each of you. One of our Resilience Project goals for this year had been to create a newsletter. The current COVID-19 crisis has facilitated this goal becoming a priority.
In this first newsletter, we are pleased to announce our upcoming first webinar, “Parenting and Fostering Resilience through COVID-19,” on the topic of supporting our children, families, and ourselves. We also offer a selection of articles and resources we have especially appreciated during these times. These, along with other resources, will be available on our Web site, to assist parents and educators, and anyone working with kids and teens.
Our main goal for future newsletters will continue to be connecting with all of you in order to support the emotional wellness of kids and teens in our community. We hope this is helpful to you in some way.
Parent Webinar with Q&A
In hopes of providing more direct parent support, our Parents Program will be hosting our first Zoom webinar, "Parenting and Fostering Resilience through COVID-19," for parents on the topic of supporting kids and teens during these times. Please join Parents Program co-directors Tai Katzenstein, PhD and Juliana Chen, MD as we discuss things parents can do, and answer questions from attendees.
