Supporting Your Teen: Social and Emotional Development in a Virtual World
Presented by: Julie Feldman, LCSW (1 hour)
Parents. Are. Struggling.
Supporting your teen with social and emotional challenges was always hard, but this year has taken it to a new level. Parents have been trying to sort out what’s “normal” for teens during this virtual year, and what might be a sign that their teen isn’t doing so well, is struggling, or needs help. You feel overwhelmed, uncertain, and out of your depth. Your confidence in supporting your neurodiverse teen has been undermined by the massive changes in how we relate, socialize, and learn. We can help.
Julie Feldman, LCSW, has over a decade of experience working in Chicago Public Schools and specifically supporting students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She understands the crucial role parents have in understanding and advocating for their teens, and is here to help restore your confidence. In this one-hour webinar you will have the chance to:
- Discuss, share, and explore various ways to support the social development of our teens during this unusual, technology-focused time.
- Understand typical responses to the pandemic and virtual learning, discuss less-typical responses, and identify concerning habits, coping skills, and behaviors.
- Gain tools to support your own expectations, manage your own fears and worries, and support your teen’s development and growth.
