Effectively Managing Family Conflict: A Sample from Guiding Good Choices Virtual Parenting Program
December 10, 2020
Many families are experiencing the combined stressors of the pandemic and the pending holiday season. Prevention practitioners are seeking timely ways to reach out to families with relevant tools, practices and programs that are research-based and available in an online format. Join us for a session on effectively managing family conflict from the Guiding Good Choices curriculum. Kevin Haggerty and Dalene Beaulieu will model a virtual session from the Guiding Good Choices parent workshop series. The goals of this webinar are to model delivering the program in a virtual environment and to provide skill content on conflict management during the double stressors of the holiday season and the COVID-19 pandemic.
By the end of the series, participants will be able to:
- Deliver this module in a virtual environment.
- Acquire skills to manage conflicts that arise during the holiday season and the pandemic.
