Emotional & Mental Wellbeing for Youth in the Time of COVID with Dr. Betsy Stone

Tue. Sep. 15, 2020
We think a lot about the mental health of our youth all the time, and especially in the era of COVID. What are they --- and we -- experiencing in the midst of upheavals, virtual schooling, social isolation? What are they learning about themselves? What strengths might they be building? Trauma creates unique opportunities for personal growth. How can you support their wellness and development? This program is designed for Jewish educators and teachers that work with youth.
