Topic: Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook: Balance and Boundaries in Technology Use
Dr. Megan A. Moreno, MD, MSEd, MPH
Seattle Children’s Hospital Center for
Child Health Behavior and Development
Forget sex, drugs, and rock & roll — today's parents and teachers have to deal with cyberbullying, sexting, internet addiction, and exposure to inappropriate online content. Fortunately, expert researcher Dr. Megan Moreno has written this book as a guide to help you teach your kids about balance and boundaries in their internet and media use and the skills they need to thrive online.
Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook will help you to zero in on the problem — and the solution. Backed by researchers funded by a $2.5 million NIH grant, this guide provides a clear toolkit for teaching our young people how to avoid the dangers of the internet while taking advantage of its full potential.
The book is grounded in the real experiences of young people on the internet. Incorporating the insight of teens and college-age students, each chapter includes real-life case studies and helpful new methods for productive conversations about these situations, in your own home or classroom.
Dr. Moreno gives actionable advice based on the most cutting-edge research in social media and technology use. Respectful of the needs of both children and adults, Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook is the smart guide to raising cybersensible kids.
Dr. Moreno's research focuses on ways in which technology can be used towards improving adolescent health with particular interests in social media. She is a member of the Division of Adolescent Medicine at Seattle Children's Hospital and an associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Washington. Her research is housed at the Center for Child Health Behavior and Development and she is the PI of the Social Media and Adolescent Health Research Team (SMAHRT).
Dr. Moreno received her MD degree from George Washington University School of Medicine. She completed a residency in Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, during that time she also completed a master's degree in education. She completed a fellowship in adolescent medicine at the University of Washington, during that time she also completed a master's degree in public health.
