April 15th, 2020

The clinicians of the CARD Child Program are pleased to share this webinar for parents and caregivers, Parenting During COVID-19: A Guide to Managing (Child) Anxiety. As a community, we are in the midst of an incredibly stressful time, full of changes, uncertainty, and strong emotions. In the best of times, parenting can be difficult, but parenting during a pandemic presents a whole new set of challenges. With this in mind, we’ve put together this webinar to provide parents and other caregivers useful tools to help support child emotional health and well-being during this period of COVID-19 related social distancing and beyond. Join us as we discuss strategies for reducing child (and parent!) anxiety.

We encourage you to view the webinar as a whole, but we recognize that time is at a premium for many, so we have divided the webinar into three stand alone segments. After a brief introduction provided by Rachel Merson, Child CARD’s Clinical Director, part one, led by Alex Keller, focuses on understanding emotions and engaging in values-based positive behaviors. Part two, led by Hillary Ditmars, focuses on responding to worry and developing more helpful, balanced thoughts. Part three, also led by Alex Keller, focuses on general tips for caregivers that are helpful for responding to child anxiety and distress in the moment. Audio files and a PDF copy of the presentation are also available if you want to listen on the go or refer back to any of the information later.

Thank you so much!
