Register in advance for this Zoom webinar

Please join us on Wednesday September 28th from 10am - 11am for a conversation with Karen Skinulis on Strategies for Navigating Unique Parenting Challenges in First Responders Families.

The First Responder’s job brings special challenges to both parents and their children. Shift-work, overtime and last minute scheduling changes can leave you feeling like you aren’t providing the continuity and predictability your child needs. It may also be hard to transition from a stressful shift to family time. Your child/teen may feel anxious about the risks inherent in your work. They may not understand why you need time to unwind after a shift or have trouble being present. This talk will explore ways we can effectively cope with these challenges (and others) by focusing on both the child’s and parent’s perspective.

Karen Skinulis is a Registered Psychotherapist and specializes in working with parents, families, adolescents and individuals on a range of issues including: parenting (all developmental stages), child behavior, self-esteem, communication, anxiety/depression, divorce/separation/co-parenting, school-related concerns, and teen issues.

Note: To ensure your anonymity, your registration information will ONLY be available to the hosts from Dalton Associates. Registrants will NOT have the option of turning on their camera or microphone at any time. Questions will be managed through the text Q&A which are sent only to the hosts – Dalton Associates. They will either answer those questions verbally without referencing the name of the participant who asked the question, or privately through the text function.
