How it works
Dr. Swanson leads a weekly Zoom (online) Parent Group. You may attend all or just one. This is not a therapy group, but a proactive, fun and informative self-care online gathering designed to build personal and family resilience in the weeks ahead. You can self-organize a group of friends or family members without geographic limits, then ask Dr. Swanson to facilitate it. She’s here to help. This is the time for sanity through creativity.
Age-appropriate explanations of COVID-19; Staying calm, focused and socially connected; Helping your child to stay calm, focused and socially connected. Use art, movement and humor for de-stressing. Connect with parents who share your concerns and desire for positive engagement in these tricky times.
