Care for the Parent

A Fordham Wellness Initiative

Care for the parent logo

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic is far-reaching, and nearly every aspect of our lives has been affected. We understand that, in addition to anxiety and uncertainty, you may be unexpectedly dealing with a new set of family dynamics—your student is adjusting to distance learning, and you may be adjusting to living under the same roof together again.

In this series of videos, we’ve brought together three Fordham clinical psychologists to share insights and strategies for helping families cope and find some harmony and peace during this difficult time.


  • Rachel Annunziato, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives, Fordham College at Rose Hill
  • David Marcotte, S.J., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology
  • Jeffrey Ng, Psy.D., Director of Fordham's Counseling and Psychological Services
