Social Media Impact on Gen Z



9:00 am
Mar 19
10:00 am

Gen Z, those born in mid-1990s through late 2010s, are the first true generation to be shaped by social media. The amount of content and the rate it’s disseminated greatly impacts one’s social, neurological, and emotional development. Sometimes this impact is negative causing our young people to feel anxious, depressed, and alone. Participants will learn how to work with this population, and explore therapeutic interventions to address anxiety and depression. (6 CEUs) One-day event, 9:00am-4:00pm
