Community Action Connects People with Experts in Social & Emotional Well-Being

Community Action’s Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series kicks off tomorrow with “Parenting During a Pandemic,” led by Katherine Lingras (Ph.D., LP), Assistant Professor in the University of Minnesota’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Lingras, a specialist in early and middle childhood development, will present and explore positive parental and caregiver strategies designed to foster social and emotional resilience in young children during both the pandemic and beyond.

There is still time to sign up for this free event by visiting Community Action’s GoToWebinar registration page. “Parenting During a Pandemic” will take place on Tuesday, February 2, 2021, from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Central Time. We look forward to your participation.

Other Upcoming Events in this Series

Community Action’s four-part Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series features experts in the mental health industry, who will provide vital health/wellness tools and strategies to the communities we serve. While trauma and stress affect those living low-income lives most, if not all of the time, adequately addressing these daily anxieties is of particular importance at this time in history as the coronavirus pandemic and America’s deep-seated social, political, and economic crises continue to disparately affect low-income and BIPOC communities. 

The three remaining events in Community Action’s Social & Emotional Well-Being Webinar Series are listed below.
