1 Hour Webinar Training with Ann Duckless, MA

PRESENTATIONThe presentation will explore emerging research studies about the role that connectedness to technology, e.g. mobile-based and social media, plays in human development of all ages; communication and relationships with others; and how these factors relate to signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression in youth. As providers on the substance use continuum of care, we know that mood disorders may often accompany substance misuse, so being well-informed of the impact that connectedness to technology has on individuals of all ages is an important component for effective assessment and delivery of services.

As a result of this webinar participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss research related to the use of technology, its impact and implications for connectedness and communication with people.
  2. Describe findings related to exposure of blue screen emissions on the neuroscience of the brain and effects on sleep patterns.
  3. Explain the correlation of connectedness to technology to the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression in youth
