Mental Health Stigma and Help Finding Services in the African American Community

Presenter: Dr. Christine Adkins-Hutchison

Asking for help of any kind can be difficult.  Seeking psychological services can be even more challenging.  For many in the African American community, acknowledging the need for help and pursuing assistance in many forms, especially in the form of counseling, can feel next to impossible. This webinar will discuss the stigma regarding help-seeking and mental health issues that persists in this ethnic community. How to recognize the need for support, and ways to encourage help-seeking in this population will also be considered.

*This was rescheduled from 09/17/14  if you signed up for this your are still signed up.

As our schools continue to increase curriculum, testing, and workload standards, many kids and teens are struggling to stay motivated in school. These are students who do not like school, struggle to complete homework, procrastinate often, have slipping grades, are bored, say they "don't care about school", avoid school work, get in trouble, are disorganized, and/or feel disconnected from classroom learning. This webinar focuses on strategies parents and educators can use to increase student motivation to succeed in school. Strategies will address the causes of low motivation, learning difficulties, improving the homework process, improving organization, and reducing procrastination.

Monsters, Robbers and Nightmares, Oh My! Simple Steps to Improve Your Child's Sleep

Sleep is critical to a child's physical health, development, and emotional well-being. However, many children do not get sufficient sleep due to anxiety and nighttime fears. Signs of sleep problems in children include bedtime avoidance or refusal, fear of sleeping alone, chaotic or irregular sleep schedule, daytime sleepiness, and physical symptoms at bedtime, such as stomachaches and headaches. Through this webinar, you will learn about the most common sleep problems and nighttime fears in youth, steps you can take to improve your child's sleep, and when to seek out professional support.
