About The Webinar

Setting Digital Boundaries to Curb Anxiety and Promote Wellness

For: Leaders, teachers, teaching assistants 

Aim: This webinar will explore how the prevalence of technology and devices in our lives can cause stress and anxiety in young people, including issues drawn from counselling sessions. It will discuss the biology of stress and how schools and colleges can help mitigate the anxiety that device use can bring. 

Rationale: According to research published ahead of Children’s’ Mental Health Week 2022, the vast majority of staff in UK schools and colleges (95%) reported witnessed increased levels of student anxiety throughout the academic year. The ‘always on’ mindset produced, in part, by push notifications from digital devices, social media algorithms deliberately designed to increase engagement, and a heightened ‘fear of missing out’ can all negatively impact on students’ mental health.

Learning Outcomes

  • Appreciating the ways that technology use may be impacting young people, and defining stress and anxiety in that context

  • Recognising some of the most widespread current challenges involved with young people’s use of internet-enabled devices

  • Understanding how young people's development and sense of safety may be impacted by technology use

  • Identifying some of the most frequent signs of distress in young people experiencing anxiety related to their online activities

  • Considering how schools can best support young people who are being negatively affected by the online environment, and the challenges involved in engaging parents and carers
