Techno-Perfection: Living in A Curated World

Risk-taking is a normal part of teen development. Today, this has expanded into the digital world. This workshop will explore what online risk-taking looks like and offer a framework to understand why teens take risks and what the benefits of risk taking are. We will also discuss strategies for recognizing unhealthy risk-taking and what parents can do to help teens become critical and responsible producers and consumers of media.
