Webinar #1: From Pre-school to Middle School: Managing Your Child’s Stress and Planning for the Future During Uncertain Times

Audience: Temple member parents with children between the ages of 3 and 13
Speaker: Jill Goldberg Arnold, Clinical Psychologist and incoming Temple President
Moderator: Aimee Gindin, Temple Board Member

While children are often resilient in the face of adversity, no matter the age, none of us are immune to the stress of living in uncertain times. From shifting moods to new behavioral issues, children are showing their stress during this pandemic in a variety of ways. 

As we enter into summer and our state gradually reopens, there are many decisions that parents have to make for their children without a clear path forward. Should I send my child to a summer camp or to pre-school? When can my children see their friends again? How do I help them work through their own feelings of loss and change?

Clinical Psychologist and past and incoming Temple President, Jill Goldberg Arnold led a discussion on managing your child’s stress and planning for the future during uncertain times.


Webinar #2: Finding Strength in Uncertain Times: How Adults Can Manage Anxiety, Grief, and Isolation

Audience: Temple member adults, 18 and older
Speakers: Stuart Jacoby, Licensed Psychologist and Temple Member & Beth Kurland, Clinical Psychologist and Temple Member

Our current pandemic has caused a tremendous amount of stress on our lives. From the anxiety around entering public places to processing grief without many of our traditional comforts and rituals to the isolation we experience from our inability to connect with many of our loved ones, the impact of COVID-19 has taken a toll on our emotional well-beings.

As the state slowly begins to reopen, we now head into a new territory, and many of the decisions we need to make about how we will interact with others has an impact on ourselves, our families, and society.

Licensed Psychologist and Temple Member, Stuart Jacoby, and Clinical Psychologist and Temple Member, Beth Kurland led a discussion on ways to manage the anxiety of uncertainty, how to process grief without the presence of friends and family, and strategies for responding to feelings of loneliness and isolation.
