Social Media: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly from a Social Work Perspective

ID: 4206

This workshop will examine the impact social media, music, and advertising have on todays society. Overexposure to certain media outlets can influence how people develop their value system and how they make decisions on moral issues and peer relationships. We know this to be particularly true with individuals who have experienced trauma and significant losses. By examining music, videos, and advertisement campaigns, we identify the negative impact of imagery and subliminal messages, and discuss ways to help individuals identify why they make the choices they make online. We will explore how to increase media literacy by educating and empowering individuals to use critical thinking skills and to see the direct and unintended consequences associated with technology. The importance of legislative advocacy will also be discussed.
