Children's Social-Emotional Needs and the Pandemic:
Autonomy, Competence, Relatedness
With Dr. Anya Dashevsky
Wednesday, July 29th
12:30pm - 1:30pm
Via Zoom Link
Children, like all humans, have three fundamental psychological needs: the need for autonomy (feeling that you have a choice); the need for competence (feeling that you are good at something), and the need for relatedness (feeling that you matter to someone else). The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted many structures that previously helped fulfill these basic psychological needs in children.
In this workshop, Dr. Anya Dashevsky will discuss how parents and professionals can support children's well-being during the pandemic by focusing on their needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness.
Dr. Anya Dashevsky is a clinical psychologist and the owner of Growing Minds, LLC, a private practice specializing in neuropsychological evaluations and therapy for children, adolescents, and families. During the COVID 19 pandemic Dr. Dashevsky continues to provide services to children and families, while parenting and home-schooling her own four children. In her work and daily life, she has witnessed the struggles experienced by many children and parents, as well as the creativity and resilience with which children and families navigated these challenging times.
