Intermediate Workshop - Tune In & Watch Out: Recognize & Reshape Trauma in Media

August 21st @ 10:15-11:45am; Breakout Session One

Trauma in media has drastically contributed to youth anxiety, depression, suicide and homicide by glorifying sexual violence through movies, music, and advertising. Not only through images shown, but through messaging via product placement. Normalize conversations with youth using the 3 C’s of Consumerism, which encourages media literacy and healthier relationships.
