with VCU counselor, Nina Schroder

Think through the value and challenges of navigating technology as parents and for helping our children.
With the increasing prevalence and usage of smart devices in our culture, the introduction of these technologies in our children’s lives can feel inevitable and overwhelming. Through discussion of emerging research as well as her experience on the front lines counseling college students at VCU, Nina Schroder, MSW, LCSW, will provide parents with helpful insight into the potential cognitive, social, and mental health effects of high screen use, and share practical strategies for parents to confidently promote a healthy and mindful approach to screen use and well-being for the entire family.
This seminar is open to parents and grandparents of children of all ages. Childcare is available by reservation for children elementary-age and younger. Youth Bible Study and Games for 6th-12th graders are meeting at the same time and all are welcome.
The seminar will take place in our Assembly Room. Free parking is available in the lot behind the church off of Ridge Road. Please use the large entrance from the parking lot to find the Assembly Room.
Nina’s clinical interests include anxiety, depression, family of origin issues, relationships, adjustment, first-generation students, and excessive screen use.
