Social Media and Social Wellbeing: Nov. 18 Wellness Workshop

7:30 pm, Thursday, November 18, Cafeteria

Immediately following the Grade Night/Potluck Dinners, parents from all grades are invited attend a Family Wellness Workshop facilitated by HCHS's Clinical Psychology and Substance Abuse Consultant, Alison Ferst, and Psychologist and Guidance Counselor , Dr. Will Braun.

This discussion this evening will be dedicated to the issue of electronic media and kids' wellbeing. Current events and the news media are bringing much needed attention to internet harassment, cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying, and other potential dangers that vulnerable adolescents face when technology is used as a weapon. This will be a time for families to share experiences, strategies, concerns, and provide mutual support to one another. Alison and Will will offer their professional guidance to parents regarding the potential risks of misused technology and strategies for supporting and protecting their kids healthy development, safety and overall wellbeing in the age of the internet and social networking.
