A 5 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON June 21, 2018

at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH
PRESENTATION: The presenter will create a space for dialogue with audience members 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 self and others; and how these factors relate to signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as other neurological changes. Also featured will be a panel of speakers representing young adults who have grown up in the world of digital technology; an addiction expert speaking about the toll that addiction to on-line connectedness has on individuals; the world of gaming; and the experience of a person in recovery who has given up connectedness with electronic technology for personal well-being. As a “Call to Action”, this workshop offers an opportunity for participants to familiarize themselves with an informative and thought-provoking research-based power point presentation, replete with resources and critical thinking for all. 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 our clients and all of us as community members is an important component for effective assessment and delivery of services.
