DESCRIPTION:

We are pleased to offer child psychologist Abigail Romirowsky’s ‘Good Enough Parenting’ series again over the next few months. Dr. Romirowsky initially offered these virtual programs last year and they were so well received, by both parents and fellow therapists, that we are repeating the age-segmented series again.

As we try to balance the needs of our children, safety concerns with the pandemic, uncertainty, and our own mental health,​ it is even more essential to support parents in being “good enough”. Research suggests that is much healthier for children when parents do a ‘good enough’ job, rather than striving for the mythical perfect version of parenting.

Lessons learned in this webinar are intended to be applicable both during and after the pandemic, taking different forms as the world changes and as your children get older. Sessions are divided by age range, so that relevant issues will be addressed for different developmental stages.

Attendees are not expected to have attended any prior webinars in the series, however previous attendees may still find value in participating. ​Dr. Romirowsky has made tweaks to the programs based on feedback from prior attendees, and we know that returning to school and the continuing pandemic have brought on new challenges for all parents.

The sessions are offered in a Q&A style discussion via ZOOM, and will not be recorded. Questions can be posed ahead of time or live via chat.

As both a child psychologist and a fellow “doing her best” parent, Dr. Romirowsky values creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for these webinars. Feel free to “come as you are”, in sweats, multi-tasking or curled up with a cup of tea. Attendees can choose to participate with your camera on or off and/or to change your zoom screen name depending on your privacy concerns.

Expected “hot topics” and registration options for each session are listed below.
