Description

WARP SPEED: Parenting and Working with Teens in a Digital Age

In today's fast paced world, technology is evolving more rapidly than our ability to understand its long-term impact on our society and our kids. In fact, research suggests that frequent use of entertainment technology by young people is actually changing the way the young brain develops and processes things such as impulse control and perception of harm. The unlimited access kids have to technology today allows them to experience an entire world at their fingertips. And while the use of technology certainly has its benefits, there are also applications that put our kids at greater risk for developing problems with things such as drugs and alcohol or bullying. This fun, fast-paced and interactive presentation will provide an overview of how kids are using technology, what they are using, the impact technology is having on social and emotional development, and how to help kids use technology in a balanced and safe way.

This presentation is appropriate for parents, communities, and professionals that work with parents and young people.

Please be aware this event will be video recorded for use by an outside documentary specialist; all participants will be asked to sign a media release.
