Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. from July 14 to August 18, 2021
Children sometimes have difficulty expressing their emotions, and parents may not fully understand what the child is feeling. The pandemic has certainly shed light on this, as children have been forced to adapt to change, just as adults. This free interactive learning series uses art to help parents and children connect-to their inner emotions and to one another.
Led by clinical mental health counselor Zeinab Moussa, M.A., LLPC, these free weekly webinars will help your kids build emotional intelligence through guided drawing activities. All you need is an Internet connection to Zoom, some paper, and something to draw with.
You can register for one, two, or all six of the sessions. Click the registration link to sign up today!
