SCREENAGERS has a NEW MOVIE!

I have exciting news! In just one month  Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience has screened hundreds of times to appreciative audiences around the country (and the world) and covered by many media outlets, including Good Morning America and the Washington Post.

Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER  is focused on helping youth thrive in our screen and stress-filled world. As in SCREENAGERS, I use a personal lens and professional eye as a doctor, to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression.

Here is a trailer to give a sense of the new movie.

Here is a synopsis of the film:

From the director of SCREENAGERS: Growing Up in the Digital Age comes Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER: Uncovering Skills for Stress Resilience and is about helping young people thrive in our screen and stress-filled world.

Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. We follow Delaney as she finds herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. Ruston sets out to understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society, and how we as parents and schools empower teens to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.

We witness Delaney as she finds her way from ineffective parenting to much-improved strategies. We follow other personal stories of families from an array of backgrounds with a spectrum of emotional challenges. We also observe approaches in schools that provide strategies relevant beyond the classroom setting. Interwoven into the stories are surprising insights from brain researchers, psychologists, and thought-leaders that reveal evidence-based ways to support mental wellness among our youth. The impact of social media and other screen time is incorporated into all the topics raised in Screenagers NEXT CHAPTER and how it may be impacting our teen’s mental health.

Some of the featured experts in the film include:

  • Daniel Pine, MD, Chief Psychiatrist, National Institute of Mental Health
  • Dan Siegel, MD, Director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center at UCLA
  • Drs. John and Julie Gottman, founders of the Gottman Institute
  • Ronald E. Dahl, MD., Center on the Developing Adolescent at UC Berkeley
  • Laura Kastner, Ph.D., psychologist and author of Wise-Minded Parenting
  • Ned Johnson, co-author of The Self-Driven Child
  • Adriana Galvan, Ph.D., Chair in Behavioral Neuroscience UCLA
  • Lynn Lyons, MSW, Author of Anxious Kids, Anxious Parents

My kid won't socialize, won't exercise, won't...

Pre, during, or post COVID, it’s equally challenging for us when our kids and teens resist what we know will help them. How do external rewards fit into all of this? Don’t rewards just crush internal motivation? And while we might “win” in the short term, aren’t we messing them up in the long run? And how does some clever social engineering as a parent fit into all this?
