Integrative Mental Health Care for Kids and Families: A New Model to Build Resilience

Integrative Mental Health Care for Kids and Families: A New Model to Build Resilience (video)

kids/parenting Aug 31, 2021

There has been an erosion of resilience in the last 100 years. The U.S. has seen significant increases in depression, anxiety, and inability to manage stress during this time. Treatment-seeking and diagnosing has certainly increased during this time as well, but the truth is that, at best, we've made very little progress in reversing these trends.

Chronic stress, depression, and anxiety are complex conditions that require more complex, sophisticated solutions. Further, power must be given back to individuals so that they can be leaders in their own mental health.

In this video session, Dr. Henry Emmons explains a more innovative framework that practitioners and parents can rely on to better understand and care for the dynamic mind-body health needs of kids and the entire family.
