Dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic has been a particularly stressful experience for parents, many of whom must balance personal life, work, and raising children. In this episode of Social Impact LIVE, host Richard Hara (bio) sits down with CSSW Adjunct Associate Professor Elisabeth Counselman Carpenter (bio), a social work researcher and clinician with extensive experience of working with children, youth, and families using psychodynamic play, art, and other expressive therapies. During this episode, Carpenter will address the unique needs of parents during these challenging times and the role social workers and other mental health professionals can play in supporting them using telehealth. Specifically, she will discuss online interventions that involve play/art therapy techniques and activities.
