Are social media and technology issues becoming prevalent with the clients you treat? Are you challenged with keeping up to date with the latest technology, apps and trends that are making their way into your treatment sessions? This training defines categories of social networking that therapists, counselors, and other clinical professionals who work with children and teens should be knowledgeable of as well as the impact they have on their clients well being.
The training will provide an overview of common social media behaviors related to: image sharing, untraceable texting/sexting, internet predators, anonymous apps, video chatting, drug and alcohol, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, self-harm and suicide. The most currently used social media sites such as Instagram, Tumblr, Kik, Snapchat and Ask.fm will be defined and youth culture and mental health practices on these sites/apps will be discussed.
Attendees’ will learn to use the iSAT-C (Internet/Social media Assessment Tool-Counselor version) tool to assess social media and mental health concerns. The assessment tool results can then be used to develop and implement treatment plan goals.
