Screenagers: Next Chapter
Film & LiveStream Panel Discussion
Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 7:30 pm

These are intense social, political, medical and emotional times. Getting more breaks from social media and screen time, in general, can serve as a positive recharge for our kids. But how to do this?

Join us as we explore this important parenting issue on film and in a live discussion.

In SCREENAGERS NEXT CHAPTER - Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience, we follow award winning filmmaker Delaney Ruston as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional well-being. She sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we, as parents and educators, can empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience. The impact of social media and other screen time is incorporated in all the topics raised in SCREENAGERS NEXT CHAPTER, how it may be impacting our teens' mental health, and what we can do to help foster youth in the face of struggles.

Film length 63 minutes followed by a live Q&A with our panel.
