Social Media & the Mind
Jenn talks to Dr. Jacqueline Sperling about the impacts of social media on mental health and well-being. Jacqueline explains the science behind what keeps us constantly coming back to social media outlets, shares how overuse impacts kids and teens differently than adults, and answers audience questions about how we can improve our digital habits.
Jacqueline Sperling, PhD, is a clinical psychologist who specializes in implementing evidence-based treatments, such as cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and works with youth who present with anxiety disorders and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). Dr. Sperling is currently a program director of the McLean Anxiety Mastery Program.
