Preventing Exploitation: What teens are experiencing on-line & what we can do about it. Jamie Mcnatt-Serbus & Matt Nardo.

Jaime Mcnatt is a licensed independent clinical social worker that works as both a middle school social worker and a therapist in her private practice, True North Therapy. Jaime has over 15+ years working with adolescents and families and has first-hand knowledge of how dangerous social media can be during the vulnerable teen years. Jaime will discuss social media pitfalls, healthy family monitoring and give tips on how to raise an emotionally intelligent child. She will also have a student share about how she got drawn into some dangerous social media activity and her thoughts for parents and teens.

Matt Nardo will also be speaking and brings with him his experience as a school liaison police officer as well as an experiential field guide for teens through his organization, Panurgic Wilderness.

This promises to be a very powerful and information session. Invite your friends and family!
