Episode 2: “Supporting Resilience Through Uncertainty: Children and Adolescents”
Episode 2: August 2020 In this episode we feature Sara Kahler, Licensed Behavioral Specialist and Licensed Professional Counselor to share with us her expertise on supporting resilience through uncertainty as it relates to children and adolescents. This topic is always important to discuss when treating children and adolescents, but I thought it would be especially relevant in a time when uncertainty is exacerbated. Prior to the start of the global pandemic, we may have had a child or adolescent on our caseload with anxiety who is faced with the uncertainty associated with starting at a new school, moving to a new house, or having a new sibling joining the family.

Since COVID-19 has swept through our world, the amount of unknowns and uncertainty has amplified and impacted children & adolescents in almost every area of their day-to-day life. Since the start of the global lockdowns in March 2020, disruptions to their activities, education, and social relationships required children and adolescents to face uncertainty head on. As we move through the pandemic still with many unknowns ahead of us, I thought it would be so helpful to have Sara Kahler on the show to talk to us about how to help our young clients build resilience through uncertainty. Sara Kahler has a master’s in school counseling from the University of Kutztown and works as a Senior Clinician at Kidspeace Outpatient program and has a private practice in Nazareth, PA where she sees children and adolescents struggling with behavioral issues including temper tantrums due to anger, and anxiety.
