Wallace’s New Psychology Column Discusses Smart Phones, Youth Mental Health and Summer Camp

Stephen’s new Psychology Today column, “Unplugged – Digital Health and Summer Camp,” highlights recently released data from the Pew Research Center about the amount of time young people spend online and the effects, both positive and negative, they perceive. It also cites research from San Diego State University professor Jean Twenge and colleagues mapping the proliferation of smart phones against the precipitous rise in youth mental health disorders and includes reference to an NPR “All Things Considered” segment featuring teen leaders at the Cape Cod Sea Camps discussing going tech free at summer camp.
