Support your parent community manage devices in the home.
Managing digital devices and avoiding problematic use of screens is a key feature of modern parenting. Often screen time ends in scream-time when it comes to wrangling young people off technology. But even as adults we are not immune to the allure of our online activities and communities.
This webinar introduces parents and carers to some of the nuances of understanding the digital playgrounds that young poeple are growing up immersed in. With a fear-free, evidence-based approach we explore some of the ways tech is designed to capture our attention and plays into hard-wired needs of connection and belonging.
Schools and organsiations can book this webinar and Jocelyn will provide the rest – all you need to do is share out the registration link to the community.
Participants will learn:
– The basics of adolescent brain and identity development and how technology plays a role in amplifying issues which may arise.
– How we can use the analogy with food to consider the impacts of screen-based media use beyond ‘screentime’
– To understand some of the cyberpsychology behind obsessive tech habits and current digital trends shaping young people’s behaviours.
