Emotional Lockdown: Talking to kids about confinement

Date and time

Share this event

Confinement elicits a wide variety of emotions, all of which have something to teach us, but many of which are treated as unwanted guests because they are intense or uncomfortable. As a result, we employ coping strategies to deal with these emotions, some of which just so we can survive, while others enable us to thrive. How do we begin conversations with our children about how they are coping with confinement? How do we help them navigate this complex emotional landscape? This workshop is an interactive training in practical ways to have that conversation and feel confident in your capacity to support your child.

This workshop will be run in both English and Spanish.
