This presentation covers depression and anxiety, social media and technology, suicide, "acting out" behaviors, drug and alcohol use, and more. Participants will learn strategies they can implement now (Who has time to wait?!), including new ways of understanding teen/tween behavior, innovative techniques for engaging them, and specific language to better elicit productive conversations.
