Health, wellness and stress management have long been a hot topic for CYC practitioners.  Now, more than ever, we must apply these ideas to our digital lives. 
In this era of forced working from home and increased use of technology, we need to understand the unique stress technology places on us and the children, youth and families with whom we work so we can shift our use of technology towards a healthier balance.  Digital wellness is possible and worth the effort.
In this virtual training, we will explore some of the ways technology can be a distraction to the work we do.  The presenter will introduce the Digital Flourishing Wheels created by the Digital Wellness Collective. Then we will explore approaches to improve your Digital Wellness including shifting how you use and create your schedule, using a more mindful approach in your technology usage, and adjustments you can make to your physical space to support healthy use of your technology. 
As you gain comfort and competence in using these approaches, you can teach them to the young people with whom you work!
Learning Objectives:
  • Expand awareness of the impact of digital technology on health and wellbeing
  • Learn how to use the Digital Flourishing Wheels
  • Learn physical space adaptations
  • Learn ways to shift how you create and use scheduling
  • Learn to use a more mindful approach in your technology usage.
