The PTA Presents: Managing Stress and Anxiety During Distance Learning

<<Click this link to see a video recording of the presentation>>

Dr. Martuge has worked in the field for over 25 years. She created a special presentation for us at this time when all Westchester County residents are all coping with the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Public health emergencies, such as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) can shake our sense of safety causing feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.

Dr. Martuge has created a free workshop that covers topics including coping tools and strategies to help reduce stress and anxiety, the importance of self-care at this time, strategies to help your children manage their own stress and anxiety at this time, and guidelines for how to talk to your children about what is happening in their world that has changed so suddenly.

  • Talking with your children about COVID-19
  • The Importance of Self-Care
  • Strategies to help cope with stress and anxiety 
  • Question and Answer Time
