Monday, March 30: How to Build and Maintain Strong Relationships During a Time of Crisis

This is a difficult time for relationships. People that are self-isolating are alone, worried, and depressed. Those that are together find that that constantly being around the same people can strain their relationships. The Washington Post recently warned of a “divorce tsunami.” Cook Children’s Medical Center in Texas says it has treated seven cases of severe child abuse in the last week – the average is six per year. The strain that the COVID19 epidemic is putting on our relationships with others is unprecedented. This 30-minute webinar ends with an open 30-minute Q&A session.

Thursday, April 9th: Responding to COVID-19: How to Architect Your Vision, Mission, and Purpose in Life

The COVID-19 Crisis has thrown the lives of many of our students and administrators into turmoil. School has been cancelled, important life events like graduation and prom have been cancelled for many high school seniors, and many of our youth have been left struggling with how to cope with the sudden loss of the structure and support that going to school offers.

Together, we discussed how our schools (and especially seniors) can rise above the current crisis, and architect a new vision and purpose for their lives. This interactive webinar included participant worksheets to help them in their response to COVID-19.

This 45-minute webinar ended with an open 15-minute Q&A session.
