Drugs, Sex and Tech Professional Development Webinar Recap

Written By: Gentle Path

Dr. Erica Sarr, primary therapist at Gentle Path at The Meadows, facilitated an educational webinar titled Addiction Interaction in Young Adults: Drugs, Sex & Tech for clinical professionals on August 24, 2017.  Dr. Sarr, who specializes in the intersection of sexuality, mental health, and technology, touched on topics such as porn use in young adults, gaming addictions, drug abuse, and age normative behaviors for young adults during the 45-minute presentation.

Meadows Behavioral Healthcare has made a commitment to offering a series of webinars designed for working professionals. The short courses offer real-world applicable knowledge clinical professionals can use in their work with patients struggling with addiction, trauma, and co-occurring conditions. Webinars are presented during the lunch hour and provide professional development opportunities while earning continuing education credit or NBCC clock hour for attendance.

Here’s what participants said about the recent webinar:

“The presenter was direct, concise, and clear (in addition to being personable and funny)… the presentation was logical and easy to follow. Couldn’t ask for a better webinar, felt like a great use of my time.”

“I only signed up for the course to fill in some CEUs, but it was very informative and good to see someone speak candidly about this stuff in an informative light instead of a berating light that often get used when talking about addiction.”

“This was incredibly relevant for my work with traditional-age college students. Perhaps my one suggestion would be to make it a longer presentation due to the breadth of material.”

“The topic is so vast that an hour seemed inadequate. I wonder if a series would be helpful. I would definitely appreciate it. I also appreciate the LGBTQ recognition.”
