    Excellent presentation, Mary! What is the main take home message that you’d have clinicians focus on with their adolescent patients?

    The key is that social media is neither inherently “good” or “bad”– but it is important to maintain face-to-face interactions with peers. Clinicians should use their CBT skills to have teens self-monitor and gain awareness of the impact of social media use on their moods. Remember to keep in mind the importance of “the basics”– sufficient sleep, good nutrition, and exercise, and mindfulness/meditation/prayer, on mood regulation.
