Community Resilience Series 1_Parenting in an Age of Uncertainty

The Peace and Justice Institute (PJI) at Valencia College is excited to offer 3 free, online workshops with Dr. Ken Ginsburg, as part of a Community Resilience Series.

The first workshop in this FREE series will be specifically for parents: Parenting in an Age of Uncertainty, July 7th from 5:30 - 7:00 pm EST (zoom).


“As parents, we want to protect our children from witnessing the fear and uncertainty brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. We wish we could take away the disruption to their education, activities and relationships. And, we wish they were not exposed to suffering.

We cannot control these circumstances, but we can work to strengthen our relationships during this time while building our children's resilience. We can remember to say what so many of our grandparents said to us: “This too shall pass, and you'll get through this with me by your side."

The best way to protect our children is to shape the lessons gained during this difficult time. We do so best when we intentionally manage our own feelings and experiences with an eye toward helping them build resilience (Ginsburg).”

In this 90 minute workshop, Dr. Ginsburg will share tangible ways we can support the children in our lives and build resilience during this unprecedented time of uncertainty and trauma.
