In this workshop, the presenters will discuss how the trauma of the global pandemic affected and continues to affect children, families, schools, and professionals, and what to expect as families and children transition to this new academic year with ongoing COVID-19 stress. Research tells us that creative activities help coping following community disasters, and in this workshop we will present some creative interventions using movement and visual arts to foster expression of feelings and build family and community cohesion.
Grieving for what was lost continues as the world starts to return to a new normal. We will discuss how to process reactions of grief, anxiety, fear, and depression, as children, teens, and families begin to transition to this new academic year.
Interventions will focus on helping children, families, schools, and mental health professionals understand what they HAVE, who they ARE, and what they CAN DO. Telling narratives that involve highlighting mastery and self-efficacy will be discussed.
This workshop is appropriate for therapists working with adults, families or children and for school personnel who will be interacting with children as they return to school.
