Mirror Mirror on the Facebook Wall:

Reflections on technology, youth and mental health

Keynote Presentation and Onstage Interview


In this session, Mark will ‘flip’ the deficit view of social media and gaming to explore if engagement is interfering with healthy development of self identity or providing a ‘developmental pulse’ where youth can test identity waters and practice life.

Importantly, Mark will answer the question, ‘What small shift can I make on Monday to start to engage?’
