Mediating Sibling Rivalry and Supporting Conflict Resolution with Young Children

THURSDAY, MAY 21 • 1:30pm

School closures, social distancing, and stress may lead to even more conflicts between siblings – leaving parents to cope and to mediate. Samantha Peterson and Anneliese Johnson will lead you through the reasons that conflicts occur, when to support children through them, and how to set siblings up to have less conflict and more resolution! These techniques can be adapted for children of all ages.
