In the fall of 2020, we face unprecedented challenges as students head back to school and families grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic. CONNECT Summit County and Communities that Care partnered to bring tangible, research-backed resilience workshops to our community. 

Em Capito, LCSW, and 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher, led two virtual workshops that shared strategies and tools for creating resilience personally. The great part is, once you begin using these tools personally they are easy to share with others! These fast-paced, focused virtual workshop were created to triage resilience levels and craft an immediately actionable, holistic practice individually and within a family. 

The events were live via Zoom and are now available to you anytime via our CONNECT Summit County YouTube channel
