MANAGING CHILDREN’S BEHAVIORS IN TIMES OF STRESS & TRANSITION
Join us for a free parenting workshop!
WHEN: Wed., January 31, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

Changes in routine can cause stress for children and families. Due to the fires, many kids are suddenly coping with major transitions such as displacement from their homes and the transition to new schools. This loss of stability and worry affects behavior. During this free dinner and parenting workshop learn how to adapt your parenting style to support your children’s recovery, honor their feelings, and reduce stress for everyone in your household. There will be ample of time to address individual questions and situations.
Facilitator Alyse Clayman, LCSW is the Clinical and Site Director for JFCS’ Parents Place in Marin County. She provides consultation and therapy to families and children of all ages. Among her specialties is working with families who are experiencing significant life changes, and with children who are exhibiting acting-out behaviors.

LONG TERM HOUSING
Many people displaced by the fire are beginning the search for a home or apartment in the Bay Area to rent. Given the tight rental market, this is a huge challenge. If you can offer longer-term housing or rentals available email firstname.lastname@example.org.
