This will be a recurring presentation (pending demonstrated interest) designed for parents and caregivers in the Somers community.  The goals of each presentation will be to:

  • Better understand new stressors and anxiety triggers 
  • Understand the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors
  • Connect with resources to help learn about and identify personal stressors
  • Better understand the mind/body connection
  • Learn approaches and perspectives on managing our stress
  • Learn from our fellow community members, hear both our common and unique struggles, and target special areas that may require more focused support in subsequent programs supported by our schools
