Today, Maranda interviewed Pine Rest clinician Aren Lord, LMSW, case manager for the Adolescent Partial Hospitalization Program on the topic, “Managing Your Fear and Anxiety About the Uncertain.” She provided advice for parents navigating all of the fears and uncertainties parents and children have surrounding the upcoming school year.
“Not only are kids feeling stress about what’s happening for the future, what’s going to be happening at school when they start back in the fall, will it be in person or virtually, and how well do I do in each setting … and when does this end?”
“A lot of people are doing a lot of really healthy things. Just trying things you didn’t do before … what can you do that piques some new interests … and go on adventures that helps your family get out.”
