North Carolina State University is teaming up with Virginia Cooperative Extension to bring a series of webinars to help with balancing life during COVID. These webinars are free of charge but registration is required to participate. Please share these valuable tools and resources by encouraging your family and friends to participate. More information about each session is listed below:

Balancing Life: Teens, Stress, and Anxiety While Social-Distancing – Friday, April 10, 2020, at 10 a.m. – REGISTRATION Required

The COVID-19 pandemic has been stressful and has caused anxiety for many people. These emotions can be particularly strong in young people as they adjust to new schedules, separate from their friends, and find a new normal all while viewing the threat of illness and death from the pandemic. On top of that, they are around their family members all day, every day, with limited access to activities and social events. In other words, our teens are experiencing stress! In this session, Dr. Kim Allen, Director of the Youth, Family, and Community Sciences academic program at North Carolina State University along with her two daughters, 16-year-old Sofia and 19-year-old Fiona, will present coping strategies for dealing with stress and anxiety in youth.

Host: Dr. Crystal Tyler-Mackey; Expert presenter: Dr. Kim Allen, BCC, CFLE, Associate Professor and Extension Specialist, NC State Extension

Balancing Life: Marital Relationships While Social-Distancing – Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at 10 a.m. – REGISTRATION Required

“Staying at home and practicing social distancing in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 can strain even the strongest of relationships. Couples are suddenly spending all of their time together, while also juggling their work and parenting responsibilities. Add in housework, money concerns, and other stressors, and many couples are feeling the strain. Some may even worry that their marriages won’t survive. In this session, Dr. Megan Dolbin-MacNab, Director of Virginia Tech’s marriage and family therapy doctoral program, will discuss ways to take care of your relationship in the midst of COVID-19. Tune in to learn more!”
