About this Event
From the director of SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age comes Screenagers: The Next Chapter: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience and is about helping young people thrive in our screen and stress-filled world.
Join us for a viewing of this new film followed by a discussion facilitated by digital addiction specialist Ozgur Akbas, LMFT.
Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. We follow Dr. Ruston as she finds herself at a loss with how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. Dr. Ruston sets out to uncover how we understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society. And how we as parents and schools empower teens with skills to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.
We witness Dr. Ruston as she finds her way from ineffective parenting to much-improved strategies. We follow other personal stories of families from an array of backgrounds with a spectrum of emotional challenges giving viewers hope. We observe approaches in schools that provide strategies relevant beyond the classroom setting. Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought-leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth.
This film is intended for adults and youth starting from age 10 and up.
