Overview: The Dark Side of Social Media

We have a new overview to debut to celebrate #CAM2016. The focus is on The Dark Side of Social Media.

Thanks to a former colleague of Erica's, Dr. Pavica Sheldon of the University of Alabama in Huntsville, we are able to further explore the topic of social media this year.

At CCA, we work to bring you professional resources that cover topics relevant to the craniofacial community. "The Dark Side of Social Media" is an important topic to discuss with your children, relatives, and friends.

Social media is an incredible tool helping many people connect with one another for support and acceptance. However, it can also be a source of negative interactions, promote social isolation, distorted perception of self, and open users up to identity theft.

This overview helps you establish boundaries for your family by understanding and discussing the benefits and risks of social media.

Thank you, Dr. Sheldon, for lending your expertise and volunteering your time to CCA!
