APAC Webinar-  Embracing Uncertainty and Change: Helping Kids Handle Unknowns with Less Struggle and More Resilience


Kids with tough beginnings have to navigate so many challenges and unknowns as part of their everyday lives, but oftentimes don't have the tools and relationship bonds that adults have to help them navigate these. As a result, kids often react to the stress or tension by withdrawing, acting out, getting hostile, or spiraling into anxiety or emotional upset. Fortunately, just like when we're struggling ourselves, it often takes just a moment of support from someone in their corner to help them get their bearings back. This presentation will provide a better understanding of how caregivers and helping professionals can support kids struggling with life's uncertainties in a way that brings out their natural resilience.


Erika Bugbee earned a bachelor's degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Oregon, and master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling from City University in Bellevue, Washington. She then spent 19 years as a partner at Pransky and Associates, a consulting and coaching practice in La Conner, Washington. There she co-founded the Online Learning Division of the company and co-created a suite of online courses on personal development and relationships that have reached 35 countries around the globe. She is passionate about helping others who are struggling to feel a sense of connection, relief, and control and she often speaks at conferences both nationally and internationally. While she loves working with all types of people, she's discovered a particular talent and passion for helping teens, young adults, and couples or individuals looking for relationship help.
