How do we talk to children and adolescents in the midst of this pandemic of Coronavirus? What are developmental considerations to keep in mind, and how do we best implement them and help parents and other family members do the same? In this era of social media, pervasive news and technology, it remains a challenge but there are tools available that we can learn and implement correctly.

Please join us, enhance your skills, while earning you CEUs, and elevate your career, your work, and make a significant difference.

Here's what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

"I love the interaction, the ability to work from my home office and not have to travel to sites for continued education and the enthusiasm of the educators. I have been quite anxious because of the coronavirus and these courses on anxiety have been helping me assuage some of my fears, especially since Dr. Sidor has addressed it during the last two webinars that I have taken. I have learned a lot and will study. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I enjoy these webinars as I am learning and feel very included." – Mary Grace, LCSW-R

"It was a great respite from the world's problems. The timing worked well, not just the concise 2 hours, but also because now I am not at my workspace so I have time." Martha, LMSW

"I think you guys are well experienced and have the knowledge to teach. Also, in times like these it still is appropriate for training." Mary, LMHC
