The Social Media Workbook for Teens
Social media has drastically changed how we communicate with one another. In many ways this is a good thing. For example, it's easier than ever to stay connected to family and friends who live far away. But social media can also become addictive, stressful, and even alienating. If you're like many teens, you probably check your smartphone several times throughout the day to stay up to date on the news from friends. But what happens when you're so worried about missing the latest posts on your feed that you end up missing out on real life adventures and connections?
Grounded in evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), this unique and relatable workbook will help you manage the stress and anxiety that can result from excessive screen time. You'll discover how to choose friends over followers, find tips for navigating cyberbullying, and discover new ways to get back in touch with your own life--without your smartphone or other devices.
Social media has an important place in your life--but it shouldn't rule your life. It's also important to remember that the "highlight reels" you see of your friends' lives aren't necessarily the "real" truth. If you're ready to reduce social media stress, gain confidence in yourself, and become more engaged in the world around you, this workbook will show you how.
