The Kids Are NOT Alright

From Care.com: When schools finally reopened, there was a presumed return to normalcy, to things being OK. But our kids are not OK. Especially our teens. They’ve experienced trauma that’s continuing to impact them and as their parents, you’ve been witnessing this first-hand. Social anxiety, depression, isolation, mood swings…or perhaps your kid seems too OK for everything they’ve experienced. You’re not alone and there are steps you can take to spot the signs, talk to your kids and get them support. Join Jennifer L. Hartstein, PsyD, a nationally known child, adolescent and family psychologist for this webinar. Parents of teens and college kids, this webinar is specifically for you.
