Webinar: The Role Of Youth Participatory Action Research In Combatting Social Media Stress

Monday, April 11, 2022
12:00pm – 1:00pm

Storrs Campus

Presenter: Caitlin Elsaesser, MAT, LICSW, PhD

Details: Social media has become an ubiquitous force in the lives of young people. For youth growing up in neighborhoods with high rates of firearm access, social media conflicts can escalate to deadly offline violence. Youth participatory action research (YPAR) is a powerful approach to developing authentic, developmentally appropriate youth engagement in program design. This webinar will provide lessons learned in collaborating with youth co-researchers to create an intervention model to address social media stress through collecting culturally informed, place-based data.
