Here2Help Strategies to Help Students with Social Isolation
The Fanwood-Scotch Plains-Westfield Here2Help Mental Health Coalition will present a free forum on Tuesday, October 13th from 7:00 to 8:00 pm via Zoom and Facebook Live entitled Strategies to Help Students with Social Isolation.
September is always a trying time for children and parents as students transition to new classrooms, new teachers, and even new schools. After a long summer break, students look forward to connecting with friends through school, clubs, sports and the arts.
This has not been the case during the fall of 2020. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues and families are presented with hybrid or remote learning there is growing concern about children and social isolation.
As parents and caregivers, how can we recognize the signs that our child is struggling? What strategies can be used to support students? What can we do to enhance social situations that now must take place 6 feet apart and outdoors? Join us as Wendy Lauer, LCSW, provides tools and tips based on what she is seeing as a therapist during this unprecedented time.
This event is free but space is limited. Click Here to Register. The Zoom access code will be emailed the day before the event. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask Ms. Lauer questions at the end of the presentation.
About Ms. Lauer: Wendy Lauer runs a private practice in Westfield and specializes in anxiety disorders, behavioral and anger management difficulties, depression/problems in mood and social skills issues.
