Social Media and the Family

May 6, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This interactive workshop will discuss digital technology use and its effects on family dynamics. Join us to explore the positive and negative impacts of digital technology and take the opportunity to analyze the effects of digital tools on individual and collective consciousness. By reflecting on personal experience and drawing from the work of experts and current research in the field, you will learn to consider the complexity in choices about using digital technology and you will learn how to  identify the challenges for young people and families that digital technologies bring. 

Come away from this session empowered to make sound choices related to digital tools, and gain practical information about which tools to choose and why. This session is open to all parents and community members who are interested in exploring ideas related to digital technology use.
