Wellness Wednesday Parent Program 06/29/2022 - Sandwich Generation & Stress Reduction

Program Description:

Pre-College Youth Programs developed this Wellness Wednesday Parent Program in recognition of parents who tackled the challenges and uncertainties that formed during Covid-19; this program will empower parents to connect, share, and develop a variety of tactics that will support them in both their professional and personal lives. The program’s mission is to give parents a space to focus on themselves and offers tools to reduce stress; topics for these workshops will include discussions such as, but not limited to Handling the Transition of Remote to In-Person Learning, Mastering Tranquility for Parents, Fun & Fitness with Family, and Navigating Holidays During Covid-19. We are offering a safe group space, led by experts in their respective fields, to create thought-provoking dialogue that will provide useful tools parents require to engage effectively with both themselves and others during these ongoing stressful times. If you are a parent who is looking for a free resource designed specifically to help parents manage their overall wellness, then this program was designed precisely for you.

 

Workshop Description:

The June 29 workshop will be Sandwich Generation & Stress Reduction. The term “sandwich generation” refers to people, typically in their 30s & 40s, who have the responsibility to raise their own children AND act as the primary caretakers for their aging parents. This demographic faces its own unique set of challenges, often battling guilt and stress from the juggling of multiple responsibilities. This workshop will provide resources and tools to help reduce stress and bolster positive mental health for anyone who belongs to the Sandwich Generation category. This workshop will open dialogue to people who want a space to speak about their experiences with being a member of the Sandwich Generation. We are offering group styled support led by one of our team members who will guide this workshop in order for it to have structure that is beneficial to all. It is our hope that this workshop will offer anyone who has been seeking a sense of community for parents navigating being the primary caregiver for two different generations some extra support and a safe space to dialogue with members of the community who are living the same experiences.
