“Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World”

Ana Homayoun will speak on her latest book, “Social Media Wellness: Helping Teens and Tweens Thrive in an Unbalanced Digital World” which explores the way social media is ingrained in all of our lives, but especially in those of teens and tweens. Young people are often living in two different worlds: one online and one IRL (in real life), and the stress of this balancing act affects all aspects of student wellness, from academic abilities and social well-being to emotional and physical health. This situation presents unique challenges for educators and parents, as children and students are often unable to self-regulate their consumption of digital media, which can lead to symptoms of depression and anxiety. The book, which is grounded in research and based on over fifteen years of working with students of all ages, offers help for students, parents, educators, and policymakers as they navigate the ever-changing issues involving social networking and healthy teen development.
