Youth Screen Dependence & Digital Health

Community Event

In our increasingly digital age, screen dependence is becoming a growing concern. Compass Health Center invites you to join us for a free 1.5 CE credits webinar, designed to provide crucial insights into this modern-day issue with our under 18 population. This comprehensive session will delve into key signs that indicate problematic screen use, explore why screens are so captivating, and offer practical strategies to help individuals and their families cultivate a healthier screen use approach. This interactive session is open to everyone – clinicians, parents, behavioral health networks, and school partners. By participating, not only will you be better equipped to navigate the digital landscape, but clinicians licensed in Illinois will also have the added benefit of earning CE credits. Together, let’s understand and address screen dependence to create a balanced, healthier digital environment.
