On Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m., Leslie Cohen-Rebury, LCSW, will give a presentation on how parents can help their children develop coping skills. The discussion, “The Gift of Coping Skills: Helping to Build Your Child’s Resiliency (and Restore Your Sanity),” is free of charge, and will take place at Temple B’nai Chaim (TBC) in Georgetown.

Children need coping skills when they don’t get what they want. This includes anything from not making a team, not getting a good grade, not being invited to a party, or not getting to go to a friend’s house, to having to deal with limits on their screen time and technology usage. This interactive presentation will use parents’ real-life, everyday situations in which coping is needed. Attendees will leave with practical suggestions, skills and possibly a new perspective.

Cohen-Rubury is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who also has a Masters in special education. She has 35 years experience working with families and children in school and community settings, and also has a private practice in Redding, providing individual, family, and marital therapy.

Temple B’nai Chaim is inviting all members of the community to attend this eye-opening, parent education event.

Temple B’nai Chaim is located at 82 Portland Ave. in Georgetown.
