Close-Up on the Digital Well-Being of Families

Close-Up on the Digital Well-Being of Families

Thursday, April 25, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. via Zoom Meeting
Trainer:  Caitlin Tully, Training Supervisor, The Center for Family Safety and Healing, Nationwide Children’s

Technology is a big part of our lives, and from social media to gaming, technology use has increased over the past two years. It is important for adults to recognize the impact of technology in their own lives, including digital distractions, as they partner with youth to build skills for digital well-being and safety.

Join us for this FREE virtual, interactive workshop that will explore how youth use technology in friendships and relationships, how adults can model healthy digital boundaries, and how online safety is a developmental process. Participants will receive digital tools and resources to support digital well-being.  2.0 Social Work CEUs will be awarded.
