New Psychologist-Led Video Series Supports Parent and Child Mental Health This Winter | State
SEATTLE, December 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The American Academy of Pediatrics and the US Surgeon General have national declarations warning of youth mental health challenges as our country continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. For almost two years, families have been under a lot of stress and tension.
Children struggle, as do parents and caregivers. In one investigation conducted during the pandemic, parents reported higher stress levels than adults without children. And Studies show that poor mental health in parents is linked to poor mental and physical health in children.
To support parents, caregivers and children, Children’s Committee, a nonprofit provider and leader of research-based socio-emotional learning programs, is pleased to announce its second annual seasonal video series, “A psychologist’s guide to winter wellness. “The series will begin today, December 21, the start of the winter season.
This year’s winter wellness videos are hosted by Dr. Tia kim, a child development psychologist, an expert in parent-child relationships and a mother. Dr Kim will be joined by a few special guests to cover a range of wellness topics. Her advice is grounded in research and she will share relevant tips and practices for children and families. Video topics range from dealing with vacation stress, to understanding culture and its impact on mental health, to being an effective parent.
“Parents, we know you juggle a lot already,” said Dr Kim, vice president of education, research and impact at the Children’s Committee. “We’ve condensed decades of research into must-have tips and advice so you can walk away with some simple mental health strategies to try with yourself and your kids this winter.”
