Webinar: Teens and Smartphones - Exploring young peoples’ views of smartphone etiquette, ‘addiction’ and healthy tech use habits

Do you work with/support young people? Are you interested in how to engage them in meaningful conversations (and research) about smartphone use?

This webinar will discuss a qualitative research project into teenagers' views of smartphone dependency and smartphone etiquette. This presentation will be narrative-driven with a focus on the voices of the young people and their experiences of tech use, as well as strategies they use to prevent problematic use. Attendees will be able to reflect on the recommendations from this research study in relation to their own work with young people and individuals who may be experiencing problem technology use. There will be interactive elements and a brief Q&A discussion.

-Claire Conlin, MSc (marie-claire.conlin@camh.ca) Marie-Claire is an Education Specialist in the Gambling, Gaming and Technology Use team at CAMH. Marie-Claire has several years’ experience working in adolescent education in the U.K, where she closely supported teenagers with learning difficulties as well as social, emotional and mental health needs.

Marie-Claire is also a writer, mentor and advocate for health equity and accessible learning.
