Teen metal health is affected by their online interactions and behaviours as much as their experiences 'IRL'. To young people there is no barrier between 'real' and 'online' lives. This book provides an introduction to social media and digital technologies and explains how young ...people are experiencing the internet in respect of their mental health and wellbeing. The authors cover a wide variety of platforms such as social media, apps, gaming, and texting and messaging apps, and each platform's associated behaviours and interactions. These are based on interviews with young people aged 12-16 who give their genuine views about social media and share their actual online habits. The book draws on the latest research to provide common sense advice and guidance about how to support young people and help them successfully navigate their online lives. Accessible and engaging this book meets the needs of any busy practitioners working with young people, and provides a positive, balanced look at how we can support and engage with teens' online lives.Read more
