ADOLESCENCE IN THE MILLENNIAL AGE
Non-suicidal self-injury, sexuality & social media
Wednesday, March 15, 12:30-2:30pm
New Hope Community Church, Walton
Over 35% of our youth struggle with emotional and mental health challenges at some point in their adolescence and many more face unexpected exposure and pressures to a wide variety of situations they may not be ready to face. This workshop will focus on three of the areas Dr. Janis Whitlock studies: non-suicidal self-injury, youth sexuality, and social media. Although seemingly distinct areas of adolescent life there are important intersections between all three. To register email [email protected]
