Safe Schools & Healthy Students: The Application of Basic Psychological Therapeutic Processes for Violent Crime or Trauma
8:15 a.m. - 10:45 a.m., Copper Country ISD, Hancock  
Delta-Schoolcraft ISD was awarded a Michigan Health Endowment Grant for schools in the Upper Peninsula. On August 16 there is a Developing Healthy Habits conference that will begin with a keynote by Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman speaking on the impact of media violence on children's health and behavior and the application of basic psychological therapeutic processes for violent crime or trauma.

In 2015 the American Psychological Association released their Resolution on Violent Video Game Effects. "Scientific research has demonstrated an association between violent video game use and both increases in aggressive behavior, aggressive affect, aggressive cognitions and decreases in prosocial behavior, empathy, and moral engagement."

We would like to invite the community to hear Lt Grossman's presentation in the morning. He is an incredible speaker and if you have not heard him speak you should not miss this opportunity. We would also like to invite the community to a screening of SCREENAGERS, SCREENAGERS: Is an award-winning documentary that is sweeping the country, Dr. Delaney Ruston probes family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction. Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, SCREENAGERS reveals how tech time impacts kidsí development and offers solutions on how adults can empower kids to best navigate the digital world and find balance. This session includes viewing the film as well as the recommended discussion following the film.

Registration is being covered by the Michigan Health Endowment Fund and the Take the Challenge Foundation. You may register by emailing Loret Roberts loret@copperisd.org or 906-482-0331.

Appropriate for mental health professionals, law enforcement, health educators, and anyone who works with students.
