Kids spend the equivalent of a full-time work week (more than 52 hours/week, EVERY week) using & consuming various forms of media. How much time are they spending on homework?
Free and open to everyone interested in or working with teens, on Tuesday, October 29th noted Mind Springs Health child & adolescent psychiatrist Craig P. Bushong, MD will provide insight into what you should know about today’s media influences. Part of Grand River Health’s ongoing wellness series, it will be a “state of the media” presentation, with a frank and explicit discussion of how media exposure (magazines/advertising, internet, TV/movies, music, video games) influences how adolescents think and act.
“Media keeps pushing the envelope of “cool” and teens don’t have the complete brain maturity necessary to critically process their exposure to the media ‘tsunami’” says Dr. Bushong. He will offer perspective on how to navigate the onslaught.
Join us at October 29th at Grand River Conference Center’s Rifle Creek Room, 501 Airport Road in Rifle. The evening begins at 5:45pm with refreshments and appetizers, with Dr. Bushong’s presentation at 6pm, followed by Q&A.
