The use of social media among teens has exploded in the last decade, with 9 out of 10 teens active on one or more social media platforms. While social media can help connect friends, pressure and risks are inherent. In this 3 hour program, presented by Dr. Amy Carnall, attendees will learn:

  • How social media use has expanded.
  • How social media can be used to help teens build and maintain friendships.
  • Risks and dangers of social media.
  • How teens can safeguard privacy and avoid exploitation.
  • What school professionals can do to limit and respond to bullying, threats, sexting and other risks.
