Supporting My Child When They are Stressed or Anxious:

Adolescence can be a stressful time for students even when the world around them is calm.  Right now with everything happening more and more young people are sharing that they are feeling stressed and anxious.  In this workshop we will discuss how to tell if your child may be overwhelmed, how to support them and yourself and what to do if you need extra help.  We will also do some coping skills and relaxation exercises for ourselves.

Dealing with Grief and Loss During Holidays and School Breaks:

For many of us, the upcoming late fall/winter breaks are times we spent with family and friends, often celebrating those times with annual rituals. The extended winter break is a time that many of us travel to see far away loved ones. For most, if not all of us, these rituals will be disrupted. This is especially true if this will be the first holiday or break after a loved one has died.  This workshop will discuss how to deal with and support yourself and your student around grief and loss during these times.

Social Media and Mental Health:

Social media impacts our health in a number of ways, mostly for the worse, but not always.  In this workshop we’ll discuss how to set supportive boundaries for your student, know the warning signs for when social media might be impacting them negatively and ways to support them.  We know that over breaks our students are often on social media more, so we will also share information that will hopefully be helpful over winter break.

Supporting Healthy Relationships for Your Student:

Positive and healthy relationships are incredibly important to all human beings and right now your child is setting up patterns that will impact their friend and romantic relationships well into the future.  What are some characteristics of positive and healthy relationships?  How can we help our students grow the skills related to healthy relationships?  What are warning signs that a relationship might be unhealthy?  How do you help your student know the difference and ask for help when they need it?  These are the questions we will be discussing at this workshop.
