Helping Youth Through the Holidays: Mitigating Adversity and Minimizing Stress (Webinar)


Helping Youth Through the Holidays – The Trust

The Trust and TrustPARMA are excited to once again partner with Dr. Lisa Cromer for this FREE informative webinar, Helping Youth Through the Holidays: Mitigating Adversity and Minimizing Stress on Thursday, November 18th from 5pm to 6pm ET.

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, the holiday gauntlet can bring enormous stress to families, and youth can be the family’s emotional barometer. Parenting magazines and news media often have articles with tips and tricks to help youth through the holidays and to reduce the holiday blues, but little empirical work addresses specific strategies for seasonal stressors.

This webinar presents strategies from studies focused on preventative interventions for helping youth with transitions. Strategies from an attachment parenting program are presented for helping younger children with holiday stress, and for adolescents and emerging adults, strategies from a resilience building program are offered.

Taking a dental model approach of regular care and prevention, webinar participants will do values and planning exercises to create space for approaching holidays with intention. The focus will be on how to help the youth in their lives – whether it be their own families or work with clients – mitigate and minimize holiday stress by focusing on what is most important to them.
