Emotion Coaching is an approach parents can use with their children when addressing anxiety, fear and sadness. Building emotional awareness and providing strategies to address negative feelings helps youth better cope with difficult and uncertain times.

Led by Dr. Raechelle Paperny, this virtual session aims to provide parents with resources to offer emotional support for their children, increase responsiveness and give parents agency. Dr. Paperny’s clinical practice focuses on strengthening family relationships using her expertise in the fields of attachment, interpersonal-neurobiology, and developmental psychology.

Recognizing that strong families build strong communities, JFSC’s Family Enrichment Program uses an outreach approach that aims to strengthen and promote healthy family environments. Services include education, positive parenting programs, youth mental health support, financial coaching, resettlement support, job coaching and assisting families in accessing community resources. Sheila Gurevitch supports youth mental health as part of this Program.
