Transitioning back to school can be nerve-wracking for parents and kids alike. Even without a pandemic, starting a new academic year can be stressful, anxiety-inducing, and frustrating for everyone involved.
So how can we feel emotionally healthy in an unpredictable time for families? And when many folks are fixating on the negative, how can we accentuate the positive—even if we’re dreading the end of summertime?
In this session, Julie B. Cullen, LICSW, EdM, shares tips and tricks to feel more excited about the upcoming school year, provides methods of lowering anxiety for both children and adults, and answers audience questions about how we can all feel a little more at ease about whatever the school year may bring.
