The free community workshops I will be at are both in Orem:
TribeHouse Event Center @ 4:00 p.m. What: “Reducing risks and increasing protective factors” When: Friday, Nov. 3, 2017 @ 4:00 p.m. Where: Tribalry TribeHouse Event Center 575 E University Pkwy, Orem, UT 84097 (Entrance is located on the north side of the University Mall, just off of 1100 South (south of Costco)) As part of the DigCitSummit, Impero Software has sponsored a white paper to explore how prevention science might be a good model for digital health and citizenship for children/youth. In prevention science, research shows that both reducing risks AND fostering positive, protective factors in a child’s life are essential to good prevention. The focus of the discussion will be to expand conversations to help parents, educators, and others think about the combination of approaches that can be beneficial to helping kids stay safe AND to be healthy individuals as well as deliberate, positive digital citizens.

We need each other to navigate this complex world in which we are living. Hear various perspectives on parenting in a digital age, engage panelists in Q&A, and interact with other parents who care about how to both reduce risks and to foster positive and deliberate digital use in our homes.
