Parenting in a Pandemic
As schools prepare for the return to physical spaces, it’s important to take the mental health of our children in mind. Fear and anxiety surrounding COVID-19 can lead our students to have different emotional responses and mental health concerns. This session will give you an understanding of what your child may be feeling as they return to school, and how to respond as a parent.
Topics covered include:
- What is trauma, and how this impacts youth?
- Understand what kind of trauma youth may have been exposed to while physical distancing.
- Students already on our ‘radar’ pre-pandemic – what are we doing to support them?
- Trauma-Informed Practice (TIP) and the students return to class.
