Screenagers: NEXT Chapter film screening

FREE and open to the public!
Oak Farm Montessori School is proud to announce the free screening of Screenagers NEXT Chapter: Uncovering skills for stress resilience. Filmmaker and physician Dr. Delaney Ruston takes the conversation around screens and teens to the next level in this film that examines the science behind teen’s emotional challenges, the interplay of social media, and most importantly, what can be done in our schools and homes to help them build crucial skills to navigate stress, anxiety, and depression in our digital age.
In Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, we follow Delaney as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional well being. She sets out to understand these
challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we, as parents and educators, can empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.
We witness Delaney as she finds her way from ineffective parenting to much improved strategies. We follow other personal stories of families from an array of backgrounds with a spectrum of
emotional challenges. We also observe approaches in schools that provide strategies relevant beyond the classroom setting. Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth. The impact of social media and other screen time is incorporated in all the topics raised in Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER, how it may be impacting our teens’ mental health, and what we can do to help foster youth in the face of struggles.
