Description

Children, teens, and adults spend numerous hours per day engaged with screens, sometimes causing conflict within families. When it comes to screen time, what should we worry about? This program will focus on the connection between screen time and child/adolescent behavior and mental health outcomes. Evidence related to screen time will be reviewed such as the new focus on quality of screen time vs. quantity. Additionally, a number of strategies will be explored that enable practitioners to support families as they navigate screen time use.
