We would like to share a new resilience-enhancing activity book designed to help children and families cope with the psychological effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Helping Children and Families Cope with the COVID-19 Pandemic” is a highly interactive guide designed for adults to work on together with children. It was developed by Annette La Greca, PhD, Professor of Psychology at the University of Miami, in conjunction with Scott Sevin, President of 7-Dippity, Inc. Dr. La Greca is a child clinical psychologist with expertise in guiding children through stressful events, and this book is structured around communication, strategies, and coping skills. You will find step-by-step instructions to tackle your children’s tough questions, engage in educational activities, and find time for your own self-care. While this booklet is targeted toward children from 6 to 12 years old, the activities and information may be adapted to any age or developmental level. Fun Fact: Dr. La Greca was Dr. Stone’s mentor during her graduate training at UM!
