Addictive Technology and Its Impact on Teen Brains

April 19, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

FREE

EXPERT:  Jeremy Edge, LPC, IGDC

Technology is an inescapable — and important — facet of everyday life for teens. Video games and social media allow adolescents to connect with friends, have fun, and learn new ideas. But for teens with ADHD, in particular, screen use can become addictive and lead them to resist doing homework or other tasks to stay online. It is important for caregivers and teens to develop strategies for screen use that is balanced and healthy.

In this webinar, caregivers will learn:

  • About the symptoms of behavioral addictions
  • How video games, social media, and technology in general are designed to be addictive, and how this can be particularly problematic for teens with ADHD
  • Approaches to discuss and instill healthy gaming and social media use
  • How to identify specific tools and treatments to help those struggling with problematic screen use
