“Back to School 2.0: Mental Health Provider Hacks to Increase Family Resilience to Today’s Life Challenges”
Parenting in the current culture within the U.S. is an incredibly complicated, busy, pressure filled process all with an ever-present digital undercurrent. Despite massive amounts of information available from every direction and an unending network of social media, families often struggle with a sense of emotional disconnect, social isolation, and mental exhaustion. Even when we rationally know better, families today find ourselves over-scheduled and fundamentally under-nourished in the ways that we know can provide us the all important buffer that our physical and mental health requires. The data continues to demonstrate the widening gap between the information available and the consistent implementation of the skills and strategies that can help us cope in a healthy way. While it used to be that summer represented a time of relaxation and calm, today’s families understand that summer often maintains the same pace with perhaps a slightly different spin. As fall comes closer we add the extra layers that the school year brings. As mental health providers, we are tasked with taking the information-overload families face in today’s society and breaking it down to make it usable, practical and palatable to families.

Join Dr. Ristau, who brings together 15+ years of practice as a clinical psychologist and a passion for translating complicated information into immediately usable tools to strengthen mental health. As we all gear up for the dive into the new school year, Dr. Ristau will leave you feeling refreshed, reinvigorated and/or perhaps newly equipped with effective ways to support families in developing a framework to strengthen their resilience to today’s life challenges.
