How do kids become more resilient and able to handle stressors in life? We are hearing over and over that rates of anxiety and depression in children and adolescents are trending upward. We’re seeing higher rates of self-harm and suicidality than ever before. As parents, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and, at times, helpless when trying to help our kids––and that amps up our own distress.
This webinar will help you:
- understand how kids can better tolerate uncertainty and distress
- learn concrete tools to help kids cope
- know when to help and when to take a step back
- differentiate normal stress from anxiety issues that need to be addressed
- recognize warning signs for bigger crises
Dr. Olga Fuller of Small Brooklyn Psychology discussed all of this and recommended specific strategies that kids, teens, and parents can use to get through distressing situations and crises. Olga also addressed participant questions during a Q & A session moderated by Dr. Mandi White-Ajmani.
We can’t shield our kids from all of life’s challenges. The best thing we can do is help prepare them and support them without automatically swooping in to fix things. We’ll give you tools and confidence. Join us!
