 Parenting Challenges: Taking Care of Yourself

Parenting a child with emotional, behavioral, or developmental disabilities can be challenging.  Parents and caregivers often report exhaustion, financial strain, and feelings of isolation. The perception of stigma can increase the sense of burden and isolation that our families feel as well.

Dr. Elizabeth Reeve will share her unique insight into the impact that stress can have on parents and ways that we can learn to reduce its impact on us.
