Family Connections: Finding Joy in Holidays & Special Days
December 7 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm CST
National Family Support Technical Assistance Center
It’s the most wonderful day of the year! Or is it? Join our next Family Connections on December 7th as we head into the busy season. It’s not just the holidays: special days – birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and the like – can also stir up worry or anxiety. We’ll take a look at practical solutions and strategies to mitigate our perceptions and expectations of upcoming events.
While we want to celebrate with the people we love, it’s not unusual to get overwhelmed just thinking about our loved ones. There may be tension or disagreements with a family member, whether it’s the family you are born into or the family you choose. Instead of opening gifts, some may open up old hurts, arguments, or mistakes with a side dish of opinion.
