Managing Social Anxiety and Loneliness in the Midst of COVID-19
Children and teens who are shy and socially anxious frequently struggle with establishing and maintaining peer relationships, which can lead to feelings of loneliness, sadness, and isolation. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these struggles for many youth, as opportunities for social interaction are limited and video platforms may create more anxiety for these individuals. This webinar will teach strategies to manage social anxiety in the context of COVID-19 and ways to increase social connection during this difficult time.
Breaking the Chain of Emotion Dysregulation in Families
Everyone experiences moments of emotional vulnerability and sensitivity and can benefit from more effective coping skills. When living with an emotionally sensitive child or adolescent, families can often find themselves in invalidating patterns of communication, making it difficult to remain mindful and connected. In this webinar, Dr. Giselle Colorado discusses how invalidating communication patterns develop and provides practical strategies for reducing invalidation and fostering validating patterns of communication between parents and their children.
