Description

Clinical work with children, teenagers, and families is challenging enough. As adolescents and children rely more and more on media and technology to relate to others and the world, research is trying to understand the impact on their physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development.

The goal of this workshop is to describe the current landscape of children and adolescents use of media and technology, report the most recent and quickly evolving research, and highlight some of the challenges that many clinicians face when working with children, teens, and their families as they navigate some of the unhealthy behaviors tied to maladaptive use of media and technology.
