PART 2 (September 19): 

Description: Learning to navigate through these current times due to Covid- 19 has been difficult. And for Grandparents, these challenges are magnified in many ways. In Preparing Families for Raising Grandchildren from Diverse Generational Lenses, Part 2, we’ll start by highlighting key points from Part 1 as a reminder. Are you struggling understanding how to support youth in their current educational experience? Are you struggling connecting to new ways of engaging youth? Have you forgotten that you are just as important to the success of the family? Do you want to learn some key tips to relieving stress? Preparing families for Raising Grandchildren from Diverse Lenses Part 2 will provide, through examples and resources, ways to gain solid footing through the challenges beyond Covid-19 and 2021. We’ll discuss what the “new normal” for youth and families will look like going forward, learn to understand key questions surrounding mental health needs for families, and how youth can learn to re-engage others as they hopefully recover from continuous months of isolation. Join us for a thorough walk-through of critical areas that affect both Grandparents/Families and Youth.

Objectives:

  • Highlight some areas of impact from Covid -19 for families
  • Learn key concepts to understanding the multi-generational experience
  • Learn strategies for managing stress in challenging times
  • Assess how Covid-19 has changed communication, technology and engagement

Target Audience: Grandparents, case managers, social workers, agency leaders/supervisors and other caregivers for children

Facilitator: Lisa Kennedy
