National Work/Family Month Key Note Speaker.
Unlike today’s kids, who are growing up in cyberspace, parents are immigrants to the digital land. This talk will describe how the digital era is reinventing the way young people communicate and interact with the world – along with the effects on their emotional well-being, physical health and future job prospects. Dr. Roni Cohen-Sandler, noted author of several books, among them Stressed-Out Girls: Helping Them Thrive in the Age of Pressure, will help participants navigate this uncharted territory. Drawing from neuroscience, personal research and clinical experience, this talk enlightens and empowers mothers and fathers to navigate in a way that ensures that their children use technology as wisely and beneficially as possible.
