Social Media and the Teen Brain

WHAT CLASSROOM, SCHOOL, OR COMMUNITY ISSUE DOES THIS ADDRESS? As adults, we have some influence on how much time those we are responsible for spend using social media.  This three hours will be spent helping adults understand the impact of social media on teens and practical ways to address any negative impacts.     

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING: We now know through research that the brain is still physically developing through our early 20’s.  There is also emerging research related to how repeated and prolonged exposure to “screen time” is impacting this development.  There are also parts of the brain that are active when people receive instant gratification from social media use.  These parts of the brain are also active when recreational drugs are used.  These links will be explored, as well as practical steps all adults can take to help teens understand the importance of taking breaks from “screen time.”  

• Understand the basic science of how addiction looks in the human brain
• Draw conclusions about how social media use mimics addiction in the human brain
• Understand other impacts of social media use on the adolescent brain 
• Understand some practical steps adults can take to help teens set health limits on social media and “screen time” use. 

Social Media Literacy - 

Using it to keep our community safe

Teens are known as internet natives.  As adults, we can be at a disadvantage when it comes to keeping them safe in the online world.  This training will better equip participants to use social media and other online resources to enhance our coalitions’ respective missions.

 This training is designed to assist volunteers, professionals, and community members in their efforts to create healthy online environments for the young people in their community.  Part of this discussion will include social media sites that every parent and caregiver need to be aware of.  In addition, we will discuss ways for youth and adults alike to promote healthy decisions using social media.

 Target Audience:  Coalition Members, Community Volunteers, Prevention Professionals

These trainings qualify for continuing education credits through the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals.

Substance Abuse Prevention Ethics training will NOT satisfy the requirement for the ethics requirement for any MCBAP certifications other than Certified Prevention Specialist or Certified Prevention Consultant.
