ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series Presents

Working to Reduce Isolation & Create a Sense of Belonging for LGBTQ+ Students in our District

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 7-8:30pm via Zoom - register here

The ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series and Welsh Valley HSA invite the entire LMSD community to a conversation about LGBTQ+ students and isolation facilitated by Dr. Jeanne Stanley. Over the past year, students throughout the country have faced a global pandemic, national attention on racial injustice, and political divides. Students have experienced a decrease in their social connections as well as an increase in stress, anxiety and depression. For LGBTQ+ students, these experiences may be even more exacerbated, increasing feelings of being different, unsupported or isolated in relation to their sexual and/or gender identity. Our time together will explore some the challenges facing LGBTQ+ students and ways the District has been working to provide support.

Dr. Stanley is the CEO of Watershed Counseling and Consultation Services, a licensed psychologist, national trainer, consultant to LMSD for over ten years, published author, and holds the appointment of Full Adjunct Professor at the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education.

The Parent Education Series is a joint collaboration between the InterSchool Council (ISC) and LMSD Health Services. Each event is hosted by a school HSA (thank you Welsh Valley!), however all members of the Lower Merion School Community are invited and encouraged to attend.

ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series Presents

Self-Care in the Time of COVID

Tuesday, March 23, 2021 7-8:30pm via Zoom - register here

The ISC/LMSD Health Services Parent Education Series and Lower Merion High School HSA invite the entire LMSD community to Self-Care in the Time of COVID. Led by Dr. Cyndy Boyd, this workshop will provide parents space for reflection on their own reactions, needs, and roles during these times. As there is greater focus on attention to health and safety in a global pandemic as well as racial justice, equity and inclusion, parents and care givers in a family are in need of space to learn to ground themselves, identify and prioritize their feelings and needs, and enhance strategies and skills to cope with stress while also providing guidance to their children.

Cyndy Boyd, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist with over 25 years of experience and is the Director of Training at the University of Pennsylvania Counseling & Psychological Services Center. She is also a published author and editor, and a national presenter in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as in mindfulness-based approaches to teaching and learning, administration, mental health services, and community engagement.

The Parent Education Series is a joint collaboration between the InterSchool Council (ISC) and LMSD Health Services. Each event is hosted by a school HSA (thank you Lower Merion HS!), however all members of the Lower Merion School Community are invited and encouraged to attend.
