iGen. iSad? Tweens, Technology, and Mental Health

Posted: Tuesday, August 7, 2018 by: Peter Hagen | Category: Community Interest


DATE AND TIME Sat, October 13, 2018 10:00 AM – 1:30 PM

A Saturday workshop for interested parents, on the topic of tweens, technology, & mental health.
WHY?
Generation Z, also known as iGen, grew up on the smartphone.
According to the latest research, iGen - toddlers, tweens, teens, and early 20-somethings - are on the verge of the biggest mental health crisis in the history of the world. Parents today face complex challenges that previous generations never had: cyberbullying, blue light-induced insomnia, Snapchat, screen time in school and at home.
This free community workshop is intended to help. Kent A. Robinson, MA LPC will speak on the topic with a thorough knowledge of the issues at hand and practical advice for parents of toddlers, tweens, and teens.
Kent Robinson is a therapist for WLCFS (Wisconsin Lutheran Child & Family Services). You can read his bio here. Kent works with high school students and their families from all of our Wisconsin Lutheran (WELS) high schools across the country. His office is located at Michigan Lutheran Seminary, a WELS high school in Saginaw, MI.
Lunch will be served. Registration is requested, with a cap of 175 registered. This is a totally free event, with the entire community invited. If there is enough interest, our speaker could return for a second presentation.
