About the Session:
Providing care for families and children is uniquely important during times of crisis and disaster. Preparing for and dealing with disasters can lead to difficult feelings, conversations, and concern. During COVID-19, each family has faced unique challenges and each member of the family has experienced the current health emergency in different ways. This session explores tips and strategies for clinicians, Extension educators, and support-service providers working with parents as they navigate challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic considering socio-emotional development and resilience. The importance of planning for increases in domestic violence and child maltreatment during emergencies is also addressed, as well as what serving victims in this context looks like.
