The Wilton Youth Council is hosting a presentation on managing stress during the “College Frenzy,” especially stress that impacts the entire family. It’s being held on Tuesday, March 14, from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Wilton Library Brubeck Room.

The College process has come to be viewed as “The Big Event” in the lives of students and their families. The pressure associated with The Big Event often creates a lot of negative fallout, including ruptured relationships and high levels of stress and anxiety. In this presentation, parent coach and clinical psychologist Susan Bauerfeld, PhD and college consultant Victoria Hirsch will offer tips, strategies and suggestions for viewing the college admission process as a natural next step rather than as The Big Event and for managing the process in ways that foster connection and resilience rather than discord and despair.

This presentation is aimed at parents of 8th-12th graders. All parents and interested parties are welcome to attend.

Advance registration is strongly encouraged online or by calling 203.762.6334.
