Social Media & the Mind
This webinar is hosted by McLean Hospital
Social media is well-known, but the effects of its long-term use are still relatively unknown. Many of us feel increasingly reliant on it, and its use—or trying to limit its use—can make us feel anxious, irritable, and even depressed.
What makes these platforms such a hard habit to break? And how can we recognize the signs of too much social media use and start to cut back?
In this previously recorded session, Dr. Sperling explains the science behind what keeps us constantly coming back to social media outlets, shares how overuse impacts kids and teens differently than adults, and answers audience questions about how we can improve our digital habits.
