Now that more than 60% of teens are using Instagram, a new window to ideas, products, and friendships has opened for them. Although access to social media can be incredibly positive, it also comes with exposure to unexpected risks for teens–including stalking, abuse, and exploitation. During this 1.5-hour webinar, we’ll explore how Instagram works, and how some teens and young adults are using it in potentially dangerous ways. Most importantly, parents, teachers, counselors, and anyone who works with young people, will leave with concrete strategies for opening up the conversation about healthy boundaries and safe social media use. We’ll include tips for harm reduction and information about what happens next. No knowledge of social media is required to attend.
