TOPIC: Dealing with the Prolonged Pandemic Anxiety – How to Support Your Students & Families. Speaker Nancy Rappaport, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. During this time of uncertainty and change, adults who work with children and families are finding new ways to connect with them, offering practical strategies for coping and thriving, and providing comfort and consistency – all while trying to care for themselves and their own families. Dr. Rappaport will share more practical concepts and tools that educators and social workers can use:
- maintaining connections and finding contributory activities
- communicating in age-appropriate ways
- validating questions and worries
- balancing structure and rigidity
- supporting those with a history of trauma and challenging home lives.
