Social Media's Influence on Self-Esteem and Self-Regulation

The use of social media has become ingrained into our daily activities.  As clinicians, we must consider the treatment implications of this phenomena.  This workshop will explore the impact of social media on clients as well as the therapeutic process.  The course will begin with an introduction to self-harm behaviors, including self-mutilation and eating disorders.  We will then move into social media outlets.  Social media will be described as well as the level of involvement for different age groups and genders.  Then the workshop will move into social media’s influence on self-harm and self-regulating behaviors.  The workshop will also provide strategies for reducing clients’ social media usage while raising awareness of social media influence.
