Well-Being of Youth and Young Adults

Presented by UC San Francisco

Parenting and educating young people as they transition back to in-person learning and jobs this year will likely be both joyful and challenging. A panel of experts will discuss approaches that parents, caregivers, and educators can take to support youth, including strategies to promote resilience, resourcefulness, and creating environments that facilitate a sense of belonging and agency—especially for youth of color. They will also discuss the risks of excessive pressure to succeed and countering helicopter parenting, as well as ways that schools can implement trauma-informed, equity-promoting approaches that foster wellness and healing justice. This webinar is part of the UCSF Emotional Well-Being in 2021 Webinar Series.
