New Psychologist-Led Video Series Supports Parent and Child Mental Health This Winter



Children struggle, as do parents and caregivers. In a survey conducted during the pandemic, parents reported higher stress levels than adults without children. And research shows that poor mental health in parents is linked to poor mental and physical health in children.

To support parents, caregivers and children, Committee for Children, a nonprofit and leading provider of research-based social-emotional learning programs, is pleased to announce its second series of seasonal videos, ” A psychologist’s guide to winter well-being. “The series will start today, December 21, the start of the winter season.

This year’s winter wellness videos are hosted by Dr. Tia kim, a child development psychologist, an expert in parent-child relationships and a mother. Dr Kim will be joined by a few special guests to cover a range of wellness topics. Her advice is grounded in research and she will share relevant tips and practices for children and families. Video topics range from dealing with vacation stress, to understanding culture and its impact on mental health, to being an effective parent.

“Parents, we know you juggle a lot already,” said Dr Kim, vice president of education, research and impact at the Children’s Committee. “We’ve condensed decades of research into must-have tips and advice so you can walk away with some simple mental health strategies to try with yourself and your kids this winter.”
