With the increasing usage of digital technology in our culture, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, the presence and use of smart devices and other technologies in our family’s lives can feel excessive and overwhelming for parents to manage. Through discussion of emerging research as well as her experience on the front lines counseling Digital Age college students at VCU and as a mom of two young boys, Nina will provide parents with helpful insight into the potential cognitive, social, and mental health effects of high screen use, and share practical strategies to confidently promote a healthy & mindful approach to screen use and well-being for the entire family.
Nina Schroder, MSW, LCSW is a mental health therapist who specializes in the treatment of anxiety and depression of college students and young adults and studies the effects of high screen use on mental health, emotional resilience, and overall well-being.
