Anxiety and Parenting: Managing Adult Emotions in Challenging Times With Megan Saxelby
One of the most crucial skills we can model for the young people in our lives is emotional intelligence. However, many of us were not explicitly taught emotional regulation skills and often feel like we are at the mercy of the many emotions swirling throughout our homes. This feeling has been dramatically amplified by the pandemic and all the uncertainty Covid has created for everyone, from our youngest household members to parents.
In this webinar we will cover the following topics:
- An informative, user-friendly summary of the most helpful aspects of the science behind emotions
- Walk through a Tiny Guide on Anxiety
- Specific skills to understand and manage emotional dysregulation, specifically anxiety
- Tips on depersonalizing and normalizing emotion management to increase your sense of self worth and support the health of your family
Bring your questions! We will open up for Q&A at the end. And a recording will be sent out after.
