About this event

Live Webinar and Q&A with Dr. Laura Kastner

During a pandemic, when many things are outside of our control, it’s what we do as parents with what we can control that will shape our children into cool, kind kids with character. Join nationally recognized author and speaker Dr. Laura Kastner for a discussion about strategies to help our children, our partners and ourselves find calm in the chaos. Drawing upon research-based best practices from her years of clinical practice and from her best-selling “Getting to Calm” book series, Dr. Kastner will share expert tips and tools to manage the pressures and opportunities of parenting during a crisis.

Learn how to:

• Maintain stability and flexibility in the face of unpredictability

• Manage the anxiety that springs from uncertainty, fear, and feelings of powerlessness

• Alleviate stress, reframe strained relationships, and address behavioral issues with compassion for self and others

• Establish practical and healthy routines that will strengthen family connection and help our children build resilience

• Prioritize self-care and cultivate a positive mindset about our parenting capabilities and ability to cope

Dr. Kastner is a clinical professor in both the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and the department of psychology at the University of Washington. She is the author of numerous academic articles on such topics as adolescent suicide, sexuality, and mental health, as well as five books written for parents about adolescent development and parenting strategies.
