About the Webinar: 

The conflict in Eastern Europe has put millions of lives at risk and created a wave of anxiety around the world. Just as pandemic-related fears were being to subside, the 24-7 news cycle is feeding fears of a war spreading across Europe and even globally, as well as a resurgence of stress about nuclear weapons. While it's unclear how this conflict will unfold, or how long it will continue, people may feel stress amid the unknown. Fear of the unknown is especially taxing on young, impressionable minds—families are unsure how to talk about the current situation or how to help themselves or their children cope.

For millions, Ukraine is the first war of the modern-day Web. Online, people are inclined toward interactivity, participating rather than merely observing what’s happening thousands of miles away. Watching ordinary people taking up arms to defend their homes and families against an outsized enemy is relatable, unlike reports and images of trained soldiers fighting a war. The combatants seem more like us, it is easier to feel their pain. Many people are having difficulty pulling themselves away from their televisions, following the invasion in real-time. At the same time, they may feel overwhelmed and frightened about what they are witnessing and what may happen next.

After two years of unrelenting stress, the combined effects of this conflict, the pandemic, climate anxiety, inflation, and political tensions, it can be difficult to cope with more sadness and fear. This one-hour webinar will address the specific sources of anxiety related to the current moment, as well as explore strategies for coping, and helping others around you cope.
