I am very excited to share this amazing free parent support webinar provided by Dr. Lisa Coyne, Ph.D., and Dr. Evelyn Gould, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LABA to help with parental burn-out during these uncertain COVID-19 times. The following information is shared directly from the Praxis website:
"Parental burnout is a specific syndrome resulting from enduring exposure to chronic parenting stress. It is not ordinary stress, and signs can include exhaustion in one’s parental role, contrast with previous parental self, and emotional distancing from one’s children.
To date, research on parental burnout has focused on understanding what makes parents vulnerable to this condition. Researchers have found that parents are at greatest risk when they aim to be perfect parents, lack emotion and stress management abilities, lack emotional or practical support from the coparent or broader social networks, have children with special needs that interfere with family life, or they work part-time or are stay-at-home.
For many of these risk factors, COVID-19 really is the perfect storm...
This free live webinar will focus on strategies for parents dealing with the struggles presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and shelter-in-place orders. Topics covered will include:
Whether you are a mental healthcare provider working with parents, or a parent yourself, join us online for this exploration in how self-compassion can begin to dismantle parental burnout, and help to ease the burden of this crisis". www.praxiscet.com (retrieved on May 8, 2020).
