Social Media

“websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking”

This easy to watch video introduces you to a discussion around social media from both a therapeutic and every day perspective.  Led by professional and accredited therapists who have an interest in raising awareness and understanding of emotional wellbeing.  

This is not a lesson or a tutorial but it is something slightly different.  It is more of a conversation and reflections by therapists around keeping you well, balanced and emotions in check when reviewing social media.

You can listen to it all at once, or each step at a time, you can come back to it time and again, when it suits you.  You can watch it with friends, as part of a class tutorial or just for your own personal interest and curiosity.

You will find out about:

  • What is social media
  • What is the positive value of social media
  • What is the negative impact of social media
  • Finding a balance that is right for you
  • Thinking about taking a break and support available.
