10.14.2020: Child Mental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic with Michal Rokach Shamay
Back by popular demand! When the Marin Elementary School IDEA Committee hosted Michal Rokach Shamay for a parent education program on Child Mental Health last spring, we found that there simply was not enough time to answer parents' many questions. Today, in addition to those same questions, we may be facing new challenges as parents.
Join us for a conversation with Michal Rokach Shamay. We will gather on Zoom to learn from her expertise, answer your questions, and support one another.
How is your family navigating the start of the new school year, amidst the many other challenges of our time? What can we do to support positive growth in our children right now? When you Sign-up, please include your specific questions so that Michal can meet the needs of our community.
Michal Rokach Shamay is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Dance and Movement Therapist. She has experience treating a wide variety of psychological and emotional difficulties in adults, teenagers, and children. She is particularly interested in working with those seeking a greater sense of well-being, satisfaction in relationships, and understanding of self.

Even in Albany? Racism and Engaged Parenting
Wednesday, December 12
Dr. A. Breeze Harper
Despite the SF Bay area's rich history of social and economic justice and diverse population, it is not untouched by racism, in particular anti-blackness in predominantly white "liberal" communities which often operates at unconscious levels and impacts parents, teachers, and most importantly, the ways in which children see themselves and treat everyone. In this workshop, Dr. A Breeze Harper, an Albany parent and national speaker and consultant on systemic racism and white supremacy, will provide an introductory talk and an interactive workshop about engaged and mindful parenting regarding racism power, and anti-Blackness.
