20-26 Segment 2: Is Your Child Feeling Anxious Right Now? Giving Support Without Shielding Them From The World


The days when election and campaign news dominated the news cycle seem incredibly distant. It’s safe to say that no one could’ve imagined that 2020 would be such a curveball. Learning’s been disrupted, many parents are continuing to work from home and fears over COVID-19 are still very much present. We speak with a family trauma expert, Dr. Abigail Gewirtz, about dealing with these anxieties as an adult and how to have important conversations with your child or teen if you’re sensing that they’re more irritable, worried or anxious lately.

Guest:

  • Dr. Abigail Gewirtz, professor, Department of Family Social Science, director, Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health at the University of Minnesota
