Today’s teens do not know a world without the availability of consistent communication. They are always living their lives in real time. This creates a kind of pressure that many adults born before the digital age do not understand. This need to always be connected, ‘in the know,’ can result in overwhelming stress and anxiety.

This presentation will focus on the very real concerns and issues that have arisen due to increased technology use and more specifically social media. Discussion will highlight how social media affects teen boys and girls differently. There will also be a focus on understanding how rising rates in teen suicide, depression, and anxiety, may be attributed to teens living life in a digital age dominated by social media.  Tools and techniques will be presented to help clinicians use technology to their advantage in treatment.                 

Teaching Methods:  Workshop lecture with case illustrations and audience participation

HANDOUTS: Bibliography/References

Learning Objectives:
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Define the ways in which the digital age has created a cultural divide between teens, their parents, and the professionals working with teens.
  2. Describe the gender divide created by social media use.
  3. Identify at least three key signs and symptoms signifying that technology and digital media are affecting an adolescent’s mental health.
  4. List at least three techniques and tools that incorporate technology into clinical treatment.
