Parents are stuck between a rock and a hard place right now: Will you send your young ones to daycare or preschool in person? Will you hire a babysitter? Will you visit your parents? Will you set up playdates? There are no right answers, and each of these decisions brings on a new risk calculus and a surge of doubt. Dr. Sam Jeannite from Small Brooklyn Psychology, will help parents manage their anxiety in the face of such uncertainty.
The workshop will provide parents with:
Evidence-based, practical strategies for managing parent anxiety during the Coronavirus crisis and beyond.
A checklist to help measure anxiety and provide important insight for the decision-making process.
Help in tolerating the ambiguity of our times.
Making space for their own compassionate self-care.
