Social media and cultural messages have a direct influence on young women’s self-concept and feelings of autonomy and well-being. In this webinar, we’ll explore how these factors influence the rise in anxiety and depression among teen girls and young adult women, and look at strategies to help them build resilience and self-esteem. We’ll also examine the roles that therapists, educators, parents, and caregivers can play in bolstering young women’s self-worth. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share.
Learning objectives: Discuss and explain current data regarding the impact of culture, the pandemic, and social media on teen girls’ and young women’s self-concept and self-esteemAnalyze and compare best practices for helping young women understand the locus of control and external influences on their self-image.
