Parent Tip
Upcoming Parent Workshops from SASED
In April, SASED will be hosting a series of workshops for parents. The first is scheduled for April 7, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. and is focused on improving physical, intellectual, and emotional health. More information and registration information is available at this link.

Session Description
Burning Up Instead of Burning Out: Improving Your Personal Performance Through Improving Physical, Intellectual, and Emotional Health

Presenters: Dr. Don and Claudia Parker

This workshop was designed to inspire people and empower them to activate healthy coping methods to combat stress so they can perform at a high level. In a recent study, parents raising school aged children reported higher levels of anxiety and burnout than the general population and were at higher risk of depression. The sheer quantity of work, worrying about the social and emotional health of their children and a lack of time to focus on their parent-child relationships were the major causes of stress that led to burnout.
