“It’s Complicated: Adolescents, Social Media and Mental Health” by Erin Walsh

March 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

 

The Internet, social networking, cell phones, and video games are game changers for youth and families. Young people today spend an average of 53 hours a week with entertainment media, more than any other activity but sleeping. Digital technologies simultaneously unleash incredible opportunities and pose a new set of challenges for children and youth.

In this interactive and energizing presentation, Erin Walsh will use brain science, stories, and humor to explain how technology is changing the ways that children grow up, socialize, and forge their identities. Erin will help professionals understand the key ingredients for wellness in the digital age and provide practical tools and strategies that help children and youth build on their strengths.

        DATE March 15, 2018

TIME 9 am – 3 pm

COST $80 Snacks and beverages will be provided, with a one-hour break for lunch on your own.
