Pandemic Fatigue: Helping Youth and Families
Enduring the challenges of a devastating pandemic, youth and parents are presented with entirely new obstacles to overcome in order to maintain a sense of normality to life. Although school and career expectations appear no longer on hold, such circumstances do not necessarily equate to improved hope in families. Examining the effects of the pandemic on youth and parents, a panel consisting of psychologists, licensed mental health counselors, and school counselors will share their experiences working from both the telehealth-based platform and in-person school services to help youth and their families experiencing COVID-19-related stress. The panel will highlight some of the most common pandemic-related concerns in the functioning of both youth and parents, effective ways that both therapists and counselors can help parents can manage such concerns, how schools can support children either in person or as remote learners, as well as tips for how parents can engage in self-care to further promote the wellbeing of their children. We will also provide some findings of the recent research examining the state of pandemic-related stress on youth and parents.
