Talking With Kids About The Coronavirus: Week 1 of PEP's Parenting Strategies

Images of the empty shelves at Costco, medical professionals dressed in hazmat suits, and up-to-the-minute coverage about the number of confirmed cases of the Coronavirus have all of us feeling a little off-kilter in recent weeks. In this workshop we’ll present tried and true strategies for helping kids process and understand scary events and identify things they can control.

In this 45 minute workshop we'll discuss how to:

  • Put on our own oxygen mask first — anxiety, itself, can be infectious!
  • Provide kids with just enough age-appropriate information to avoid overwhelming them
  • Listen with empathy and use reflective listening
  • Help kids see how they can be part of the solution by practicing good hygiene and finding ways to stay calm

When Emory was feeling utterly overwhelmed by her strong-willed two-year-old, she took her first parenting classes at the Parent Encouragement Program (PEP). After blazing through the program, she went on to become one of their most active Certified Parent Educators in 1995. Her experiences with teaching parents inspired her to want to do even more to help families, leading Emory to seek training as a family therapist. In 2004, she earned her Masters Degree in Couples and Family Therapy from the University of Maryland.

Over the years, Emory has provided therapy to hundreds of individuals and families and taught more than 1500 parents how to create happier and more highly functioning families. Many people have gotten to know Emory through her writing. Since 2005, she has written a monthly column in the Voice Newspapers and in the Washington Parent magazine

Emory is licensed as a Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in both the State of Maryland and the State of New York. She is a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
