Internet Addiction? Problematic Use of Social Media and Video Gaming

There is widespread concern by many parents about internet, social media and video game usage by their children. As technology become increasingly pervasive in our lives, and children become proficient at younger and younger ages, there are many questions about the impact these media are having on the social and emotional wellbeing of users.

Some of the issues that will be discussed are:

  • How to determine when these technologies are problematic,
  • How to set limits on usage
  • The reasons why children are so engaged by the technology

This workshop is led by Dr. Pesner who has previously presented on this topic as the ASPEN Conference (Spring 2014) and to various audiences. Please click on our YouTube icon to view short sections of those presentations. This workshop is offered at two separate times.
