The lead article in this issue, “Parent Training and Cultural Considerations” by Aleksandrov, Bowen, and Colker, discusses a growing concern in parent education related to ethnicity and multicultural issues. The authors present the pros and cons of tailoring program materials to needs of parents from a multicultural perspective. They report some studies that support this approach as well as others that were nonsignificant. The editors were impressed with the extensive literature review the authors included to support their positions.

A 0.63 second Google search for the word “coronavirus” produced about 4,130,000,000 results. In a matter of weeks, coronavirus became a household word carrying fears, anger, and resentment; triggering politics and crushing markets; sending people to stock on supplies; and unearthing old prejudices and biases. With mounting stories about quarantines and closures of schools and businesses all around the world – one topic remains neglected. This is a topic of optimal psychological survival of the epidemics for the families, beyond washing hands, wearing masks, and staying away from those who are sick. The webinar will share ideas and practical tips about optimal psychological survival for individuals, couples, and families (including healthy parenting practices) in the era of coronavirus. Presented by Marina Bluvshtein, Ph.D., Adlerian psychologist and a director of the Center for Adlerian Practice and Scholarship at Adler University, Chicago.
