“Is Screen Time Ruining Their Brains?: What the research actually says about kids and technology” 

Speaker: Dr. Brandy Baker

Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 12:00-1:30PM 

Mountain Oyster Club

 

Description

With current media use estimated to total more than 9 hours on average a day for today’s teens and 6 hours a day for tweens, there’s never been a time when the influence of technology was more relevant. This seminar will review the evolution of screen media usage in diverse families as well as examine the newest research on the impact of screen media use and identify tools for professionals to assist children and caregivers in developing healthy screen time limits.

This introductory level presentation will help participants

1.  Identify how research suggests screen media usage has changed among children in the last decade.

2.  Summarize the emerging research on the impact of screen media use on children, teens and their families.

3.  Identify practical tools and strategies for psychologists and psychotherapists helping children and their families create individualized screen routines.

Who should attend?

Psychologists, school psychologists, behavioral health practitioners, health care professionals, and any other interested parties.

About the Speaker

Brandy Baker, PsyD, a licensed psychologist,  has worked in community mental health, teen residential treatment, private practice, schools, social service agencies, and in other community organizations. Dr. Baker has assisted strategic planning, developed and implemented numerous programs for children and families and designed culturally sensitive programming for a variety of communities to teach about mental health. Dr. Baker is the co-founder and Clinical & Training Director at Intuition Wellness Center where she provides therapy to children, adolescents, and families; consultation to schools; supervises the clinical team; and oversees training programs for local professionals and for the University of Arizona Clinical and School Psychology PhD students. Dr. Baker has several years of experience and training working with pediatric populations. She currently works with a predominantly bright, talented, and hypersensitive population of children, teens, and caregivers persevering through anxiety, depression, phobias, mood dysregulation, ADHD, Autism, giftedness, family conflict and peer difficulties. Most of the families Dr. Baker assists have struggled with identifying and creating healthy boundaries around their screen time usage and Dr. Baker conceptualizes this as a culture-wide epidemic that nearly all families are navigating without being well-informed consumers.
