3 Continuing Education (CE) Clock Hours in Behavioral Health*

Technological advancements have provided more ways for people to communicate and share information then ever before. But evidence also seems to show that feelings of social isolation and anxiety in relationships is also rising, particularly for adolescents and younger adults. This training will look at the context of these trends, explore research as to why connecting technology is creating greater feelings of isolation, and ways that mental health professionals and others in the helping professions can have positive impact on individuals, families, and groups in decreasing anxiety and improving relational satisfaction.

Course Learning Objectives

  1. To identify the major trends in social media and others interactive technologies and how they have impacted recent generations.
  2. To understand the research as to how social media and interactive technology are creating contexts of greater social isolation and relational anxiety.
  3. To implement practical ways for therapists/counselors and others in helping professions to apply a greater knowledge in the social effects of interactive technology to support people in creating and maintaining healthy habits and relationships.
