THE PROMISE AND THE PAIN OF SOCIAL MEDIA, SELF HARM AND OTHER HEALTH-HARMING BEHAVIOURS. BUILDING RESILIENCE AND HEALTH-HEALING ALTERNATIVES (relevant for children age 5-18)

29th September 2018
Cost: £183

This conference offers vital knowledge on ways teenagers and children make themselves deeply unhappy by activities and ways of connecting with people that initially promise so much. Presenters will explore the initial excitement and thrill of social media for example, which then for young people often leads to terrible feelings of humiliation, shame, being left out or utter loneliness. Other presenters will similarly look at the ‘promise then the pain' of self-harm, drugs, alcohol, or taking the decision to eat very little. There will be exploration of vital relational interventions and how to address painful feelings rather than trying to escape them.
