This Just In!: News Violence and the Effects on Young People

Around the clock, breaking news is a staple of our culture. We have more access to up-to-the-minute information now that ever before, and so do young people. So, when an event such at the Virginia Tech attack or the failing economy streams nonstop into the lives of young people, does it have an effect on them and their view of the world?  Is it a public health concern? Learn when a bounty of information can become too much information, and the role of adults in building resilience in young people.

This Mental Health series videoconference is free for New Links to New Learning members; non members pay $85 per site. Sara Whitlock of BJC Healthcare will present this one hour distance learning event for K-12 educators from Cooperating School Districts in St. Louis, Missouri. Come and connect with questions! To sign up, phone 314-692-1274.
