Making Interpersonal Connections with Tech-Savvy Teens

Presented by

Joanna Jullien, CEO Core Connectivity

On November 9, 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 Noon.

Immediately following the workshop, all participants are invited to our Holiday Celebration Lunch from 12 to 1 p.m.

The traditional models of parenting emphasize power and control in the parent-child bond as parent-centric authority (i.e., authoritative, authoritarian, permissive and attachment), and skill-based models such as pro-social and positive discipline to influence behavior. Members will learn about a new parenting authority paradigm that recognizes tech-savvy youth have the same powers of self-determination as adults essential to establish authentic connection, and tools to empower teens to embrace discipline to regulate technology use. This training refers to the neurobiology of addiction and treatment and recovery, the principles of trauma-informed care and post-trauma growth, and mindfulness science associated with resilience.

Over the past 15 years, Joanna has served the community as a youth substance abuse prevention strategist and as a parenting and family life coach and educator. She is a former technology executive trained in behavioral science at U.C. Berkeley, a mother of two grown sons, and an author of books for practical guidance on parenting, growing up, and family life in the network culture. As a family and technology culture advisor, Joanna delivers trainings and workshops to schools, churches, and professional associations; publishes insights for parenting in a cyberpowered world through the Core Connectivity newsletter and website; and has appeared on 103.9FM The Fish, 710AM Keeping Faith in America, 1380AM The Answer, and Examiner.com.

Educational Goals:
As a result of this training, clinicians will embrace a new parenting paradigm that recognizes parents and children are in charge of themselves and must learn how to collaborate in order to overcome behavioral health issues and adversity.

Participants will:

  1. understand how the insights and tools associated with this paradigm shift can help parents strengthen their relationship with teens living media-centric lives, and
  2. prepare the participants to educate parents as to how they can support treatment and improve wellness outcomes for teen clients.

Learning Objectives:
After the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain how social media has conditioned us and our children for authority as a relational experience.
  2. Summarize the “relational model of authority” for parenting tech-savvy youth.
  3. Identify the elements of family culture as tools for collaboration.
  4. Demonstrate to parents how to create house rules that foster open communication and build trust.

This is an introductory workshop and is appropriate for licensed and pre-licensed as well as graduate students and trainees.
