Please note that for mobiles we stream the presentation slides and audio of the speaker.
Dr Jon Goldin looks at the ways in which young people are using social media, addressing issues such as cyber-bullying, online grooming and pro-anorexia websites. Presenting the correlation between increased internet use and mental health issues in adolescents, Dr Goldin considers ways in which both adults and young people can educate themselves on online safety.
