The College Process: How to Cope with Uncertainty and Support Your Teen

October 19, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am


Uncertainty is but one of the many challenges that naturally accompany the college process. Yet the pressure associated with attempts to reduce and/or eliminate uncertainty often account for an inordinate amount of the stress. Add an ongoing pandemic, with its own high levels of uncertainty, and you’ve got a stressful challenge on steroids! But stress doesn’t have to run and/or define the show. This talk will show you how to shift away from trying to eliminate the uncertainty and toward coping with it.

Join clinical psychologist and parenting coach, Susan Bauerfeld, Ph.D., for an interactive discussion. Following an overview of how and why worry’s goals of eliminating uncertainty and discomfort actually backfire, Bauerfeld will provide concrete strategies for coping with uncertainty that can lower the stress level for both you and your teen as you navigate the college process together.

The presentation is appropriate for parents of 10th through 12th-grade students.

We hope to make a recording of this presentation available. More information to come.
