 “As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve, each of us is adjusting to a new normal,” said Jeffrey Weisberg, executive director of the River Phoenix Center for PeaceBuilding in Gainesville (RPCP).

For many parents and kids this means spending a lot of time together at home, and that, even under normal circumstances can be a recipe for stress and conflict, he added.

According to Howort, it will be an interactive workshop through Zoom that also will use, “the wisdom of the group for reflection and input on what is working at home and what could be working better.

“We will discuss the difference between agreements and rules, equity between siblings, restorative practices and the biology of the brain and what happens during stress and how to support young people.”

The RPCP is a nonprofit organization guided by the life and activism of Gainesville native River Phoenix. The Center honors his dedication and courageous contribution to the field of entertainment, as well as the well-being of all life on our planet. His approach was “solution-based” and RPCP is dedicated to following this path.
