MARSHFIELD – Emotional management is the theme of Marshfield Clinic Health System's 2021 Behavioral Health Virtual Community Conference on June 23.
Lynn Lyons, a licensed independent clinical social worker from Concord, New Hampshire, will host “Now What? Helping Children (and Parents) Manage Emotionally During Uncertain Times."
Children and teens were struggling with increasing rates of anxiety and depression prior to 2020, and this past year didn't help. Parents and caregivers need strategies to help children (and themselves) manage the uncertainty of our current environment as we recover and move forward. This presentation describes the skills needed for emotional management including how to increase flexibility, tolerate uncertainty, communicate effectively and replace catastrophic thinking with problem solving.
