Parent Encouragement Program (PEP) is a nonprofit educational organization that provides in-person and online classes to parents and all who care for children, toddlers through teens. Join them on January 24, 2023, for a free webinar: 10 Tips to Help Stressed & Anxious Children When You Can’t Find Therapy.

Parents were already concerned about rising rates of child anxiety and depression before the US declared a national emergency in child and adolescent mental health in October 2021.

Mental health professionals are in high demand. As a result, parents encounter extensive searches and long waiting lists to find help for children who are stressed, anxious, and depressed. So what can parents say and do to support children when professional help is not immediately available?

Psychotherapist and PEP Parent Educator Emory Luce Baldwin helps children, young adults, and families reconnect with a sense of being capable, finding perspective, and feeling courageous and confident. Through a parent-child interview, Emory will demonstrate strategies and questions to help your child:

  • Find solid ground to stand upon to deal with the challenges they are facing.
  • Identify the source(s) of distress; parents can ask, “What’s the problem you are dealing with?” instead of “What’s the matter with you?
  • Make the shift from feeling helpless to feeling more capable.

This webinar is free for parents of children ages five and up. Registration includes access to the live webinar, video/audio recordings to watch later, and handouts/resources. Pre-register for this free online opportunity (link below).
