“Isolation: the New Drug of Choice” with Dr. Caroline Fenkel, LCSW
With the advent of laptops, high-speed wifi, smart phones, Snapchat, Pinterest, Netflix, single shooter video games, it isn’t hard to wonder why teens and young adults prefer to stay in their rooms during their free time rather than connect with their peers IRL (in real life). Join Dr. Fenkel as we navigate our new world of finding ways to encourage young adults to stop isolating! This presentation will address the causes of chronic isolation and some tactics to help break the isolation cycle.
