General Description

Are you worried about your students developing a problem with gaming or internet overuse in class or at home? Noticing their concentration wandering, or even their grades dropping? Then this is the course to assist you.

During this session I will outline the basic concepts and the historical development of the emerging phenomenon of ‘problematic internet use’ or PIU ( often dubbed ‘internet addiction’), and how a teacher or counsellor can recognise it in a student in any school-year. I will draw on both personal direct clinical experience, Australian research, and the wide international research. I will comprehensively but accessibly cover practical strategies in how to address an emerging problem in a specific student, as well as strategies to improve the ‘digital diet’ within the classroom and in the whole-school community. I will also delineate key mental-health referral and treatment pathways, when these are required in a worsening or entrenched situation.

Audience

This course will be relevant to a wide range of professionals within the teaching community, from teachers ( both primary and secondary) to principals/ deputies, and to school counsellors and support teachers.
