Presenter: Azlen Theobald, Psy.D.
What is burnout? We’ve all likely felt it in some capacity whether at home, in a school setting, or within our job environment. In the current pandemic setting, parents are wearing even more hats than they usually do and have found themselves very swiftly and without much preparation time playing the role of parent, educator, behavioral therapist, and coach. For children with neurodevelopmental disorders, the COVID-19 environment has meant a drastic change from their daily routine and left parents and caregivers feeling overwhelmed and burned out.
Dr. Azlen Theobald of NeurAbilities Healthcare will discuss parental burnout, strategies to help reduce conflict, and ways to manage mental health for both parents and children during this public health crisis.
