The Dalai Lama Center is excited to launch the first Heart-Mind Live webinar on supporting parents and children as they return to school.
About this Event
Join local experts in child and youth mental health, social-emotional learning, and evidence-informed parenting in this one-time-only, free webinar!
Back to school isn’t easy in the best of times. As we carve out a new normal in the classroom in the midst of COVID-19, our kids need our social-emotional support more than ever. The Dalai Lama Center is here to help, with a new, special-event webinar on nurturing our children (and ourselves) through the back-to-school transition.
This free webinar is designed for parents and caregivers to learn evidence-informed, practical ways to cope with uncertainty and anxiety in order to guide their children through this challenging transitional time.
