Coping with my first patient in therapy (Clinical Session)
Understanding the impact of social networking on teens is important because nearly all teens go online daily. A Pew Research Center survey shows that 89% of teens report that they are online “almost constantly” or “several times a day.”
Teens are more likely to log on to Instagram than any other social networking site. It is a ubiquitous part of teen life. Yet studies consistently show that the more often teens use Instagram, the worse their overall well-being, self-esteem, life satisfaction, mood and body image. One study found that the more college students used Instagram on a given day, the worse their mood and life satisfaction was that day.
Humans, as a rule, look to others to know how they fit in and judge their own lives. Adolescents are especially vulnerable to these social comparisons. Almost everyone remembers worrying about fitting in in high school. Instagram exacerbates that worry. It’s hard enough to compare yourself to a supermodel who looks fantastic (albeit filtered); it can be even worse when the filtered comparison is Natalie down the hall.
Your doctor might order a head MRI, head CT scan, or lumbar puncture to help diagnose and evaluate your condition. If your headache does not have a serious underlying cause, your doctor may try to identify headache “triggers” such as stress or certain foods, and recommend preventive medications, lifestyle changes, or pain medications in order to control your symptoms.
A headache is a pain in the head or upper neck. The two main types of headaches are primary headaches, which are not associated with a medical condition or disease, and secondary headaches, which are caused by an underlying injury or disease, such as a concussion, bleeding in the brain, infection or tumor in the brain.
Symptoms of a tension headache include pressure and a band-like tightness that begins in the back of the head and upper neck and gradually encircles the head.

Page ContentFew images provoke the degree of shock and revulsion that accompanies those of self-injury. When someone thinks of cutting oneself � a form of self-injury � what usually comes to mind is an emotionally unstable teenage girl who cuts her forearms with a razor. However, self-injurious behavior can be more subtle and therefore much more difficult to detect and address. That is why it is so important to know how and why it occurs and where you can turn to find help.
Young people of all ethnic groups, ages, and income levels are intentionally hurting themselves. Cutting is most common among adolescent, Caucasian youth who come from intact, middle- to upper-class families. Self-injurious behavior often begins during middle school (high school) and young people are introduced to it by peer groups and media (e.g., music, television, internet, etc.).

Images, in some way, have become available to anyone: to consume them, to circulate them, or to produce them. Making images, today, is within everyone’s reach. And this possibility of making images is what the fifth edition of Fundación Noble’s contest #SosVosEnLaRed2019 has offered to young people and teenagers from all over the country: to create in order to tell, to communicate, to express and ask questions about identity and subjectivities of our time, crossed as never before by technology and digital communication.
Adolescent images, then, are those that speak to us of processes of creation and growth, of exploration and questions, of subjectivities and points of view that are being consolidated through diverse narratives.
