Our wonderful friend and ally FAN (The Family Action Network) is thrilled to announce their first webinar, in partnership with New Trier High School D203. This program features the return of a huge FAN favorite, Lisa Damour, Ph.D.! She will be doing a live webinar, “Managing Stress, Anxiety, and Parenting Under Covid-19,” Tuesday, May 5, 7:00-8:00 PM. She will do a 30-to-40 minute presentation, with PowerPoint, and will then be interviewed by Denise Dubravec, Principal at NTHS’ Winnetka campus. Lisa has had a high profile over the past month, writing pieces for The New York Times, doing webinars and interviews, and her calm, reasonable, how-to advice is right on point, right now.
The event is now posted on the FAN website. Registration is required, and the event will be recorded and then archived on the FAN website and YouTube channel. Free and open to the public, as always. Register here.
