About This Webinar:

Providing care for families and children is uniquely important during times of crisis and disaster. Preparing for and dealing with disasters can lead to difficult feelings, conversations, and concerns. During COVID-19, each family has faced unique challenges and each member of the family has experienced the current health emergency in different ways.

This webinar explores tips and strategies for clinicians, Extension educators, and support-service providers working with parents as they navigate challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic considering socio-emotional development and resilience. We address the importance of planning for increases in domestic violence and child maltreatment during emergencies , and explore what serving victims in this context looks like.

  1. I cannot figure out how to take the test for the CEs after this course. One page for a review comes up but otherwise it just keeps replaying the course and I couldn’t find any other links. I wanted to take another course in this series as well, but I don’t want to run into the same problem of not being able to get the CEs. If anyone could walk me through this so I can figure it out I’d really appreciate this. I don’t know if others are running into this problem as well. Thanks.
