Even though following stay-at-home orders is important for safety, It can also lead to “too much togetherness” – and also isolation. Managing these challenges while also coping with pandemic-related stress, fear, and anxiety can be very difficult!
Fullpower communication and social emotional safety skills help adults and teens:
  • Develop emotional safety skills and strategies
  • De-escalate, avoid, and resolve conflicts with loved ones in close quarters
  • Set, negotiate, and uphold boundaries with children and teens
  • Make side-by-side remote work and distance learning less stressful and more productive
  • Parent babies and toddlers, solo or as a pair in isolation without other adult help
  • Develop strategies to prevent negative impacts of social isolation
  • Advocate long-distance to help hose not together with you, such as to help them get medical care or food 
  • Make safety plans for stay-at-home situations with someone who can be hurtful, abusive, or violent 
  • Advocate to get help for themselves those at home with them who are now distanced from therapists, teachers, and other care providers they counted on for health and well-being
  • Help others, including children, learn and use age-appropriate versions of these skills

We are working with people who want to organize online Adult Safety Leadership Workshops for taking charge of emotional and physical safety with families – and Kidpower workshops for small groups of young people of different ages and abilities with their adults. Contact us for more information.
