Event description
This training will equip adults with information and specific tools to help protect young people from the adverse effects from the internet

About this Event

The internet is becoming an increasingly indispensable tool for today's youth in spite of growing awareness of the dangers associated with on-line activities. The amount of time children and teens are using the internet everyday is increasing at an alarming rate. Studies have shown that increased social media use increases mental health issues in youth. Young people are inundated by a constant barrage of information from the internet. As an adult in their lives, we must learn how to implement tools and raise our own awareness of the dangers of the internet in order to keep them safe while navigating their lives in a cyber world. This training will equip parents, advocates and professionals working with youth with useful information and specific tools to help protect young people from the adverse effects of the internet.

This training is approved by the National Association of Social Workers-Tennessee Chapter for 2.5 continuing education units.
