For the parents and caregivers of young children, this has been a year for the record books. On top of what has always been considered “full-time work,” they have added distance learning coordinator, PE teacher, art teacher, afterschool activity coordinator, and much more to their plate. How can you move forward in a way that makes you feel empowered, creates an intentional space for your own self-care, and equips you with key skills and knowledge to thrive in the months ahead?

Join us for this online workshop to share your experiences, learn from others, and gain key knowledge and resources to navigate the way forward through the current shifting landscape. You will learn where you are on the well-being spectrum, the current challenges and areas of distress for parents in the US, and key strategies for managing your own self-care while caring for children. Most importantly, you will form an alliance with other parents and caregivers of children for support and resource sharing.

This online facilitated discussion consists of a pre-session survey to tailor the workshop content and understand trends among caregivers more broadly. Be prepared to actively participate in small-group breakout sessions and leave with a post-session, crowd-sourced list of strategies and resources and ideas. The session is geared towards those who are primary caregivers for children ranging in age from birth to 18 years; however, caregivers of older children are welcomed.

Shanna B. Tiayon, PhD, is a writer, speaker, and trainer whose work focuses on topics of well-being and the ways we may infringe upon the well-being of others.  She is the owner of Wellbeing Works, a consulting firm focused on employee well-being.
