After the success of last year’s events, COLlive.com and Operation Survival, a department of the NCFJE, are once again partnering to host a virtual lecture series for parents and educators addressing hot topics in the area of mental health.
The series entitled, “How to Stay in Control in an Ever-Changing World,” will feature four events on four consecutive Tuesdays from April 13th through May 4th. The topics of eating disorders, mother-daughter communication regarding intimacy, cutting and self-harm, and trauma will each be presented by a renowned expert in the field and introduced by a Chabad educator involved with providing community support in that area.
“We are pleased to offer a forum for discussing these issues that are prevalent among our children, with an eye on prevention and providing support,” says Yaacov Behrman, Director of Operation Survival.
The lectures will take place at 8:30 PM on the following days April 13th, April 20th. April 27th, and May 4th, and can be viewed via Zoom, or through tuning in at COLlive.com.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the presentations.
