FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The University of New Mexico Health Sciences’ Dr. Rebecca Ezechukwu to focus on healthy routines for families during the public health emergency

SANTA FE — Today, the Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) announced the second in a series of Zoom-based presentations to support parents, families, and educators during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The upcoming presentation will feature Dr. Rebecca N. Ezechukwu, a clinical psychologist and assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at UNM Health Sciences.

Dr. Ezechukwu will offer guidance around establishing routines to manage family stress. Her presentation will explain why doing so can be beneficial – and how to get started. Dr. Ezechukwu will also offer strategies for balancing multiple roles as a parent/caregiver, creating space for emotional check-ins with kids, and overall family resilience. She will also discuss how educators can help support routines through their instructional choices.
 
Dr. Ezechukwu’s presentation follows last week’s event with Dr. Alicia Lieberman, director of UCSF’s Child Trauma Research Program. For those who are not able to participate in this week’s live event, a recording – as well as Dr. Ezechukwu’s PowerPoint slides – will be available here.  
 
The webinar will take place from 3 – 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 30, and is open to the general public. New Mexicans who would like to participate can register here:
