Kids and Media:
Why You Should Be Concerned (1.5 CME/CE Credits)

 

 

Children and adolescents now spend more than 5-7 hours a day with a variety of different media. How does that affect their attitudes and behavior, and what can health professionals do about it? This talk will discuss the latest research in the field on the impact of media on babies, children, and adolescents, illustrated with abundant examples of both pro-social and potentially harmful media. In addition, a brief section will involve media training for health professionals about health-related issues important to them – how to talk to newspaper reporters, radio interviewers, and appear on TV. Topic areas will include media violence, cyberbullying, substance abuse, sex and sexuality, sexting, and the importance of the Internet, social networking, and cell phones
