Session Objectives:

1. Guide your patients (parents and children) to use social media responsibly.
2. Provide practical, actionable tips on when to get tweens/teens their first phones, how to decide if their children are ready for social media and how to use social media in a way that would not harm their mental health.


Over the past decade, social media has surged in popularity and has become almost impossible to avoid. As a result, we and our patients are participating in an unprecedented social experiment. With troubling headlines appearing daily in the media about the increase in prevalence of teen depression and other possible negative effects of social media, it is difficult to know what is actually evidence-based, and what are merely attention-grabbing headlines. Parents often look to their health care professionals for advice on how to manage this new and unfamiliar landscape of online communication, and how to keep their kids safe.This education session will use case examples and work flow to elicit history and mental health problems related to social media and information overload. Practical tips will be provided for physicians and allied professionals on how to partner with parents.
