New screen time research published

Sharon White - Tuesday, April 23, 2019 -

The notion that digital-screen engagement decreases adolescent well-being has become a recurring feature in public, political, and scientific conversation. The current level of psychological evidence, however, is far removed from the certainty voiced by many commentators. There is little clear-cut evidence that screen time decreases adolescent well-being, and most psychological results are based on single-country, exploratory studies that rely on inaccurate but popular self-report measures of digital-screen engagement. In this study, which encompassed three nationally representative large-scale data sets from Ireland, the United States, and the United Kingdom (N = 17,247 after data exclusions) and included time-use-diary measures of digital-screen engagement, the authors used both exploratory and confirmatory study designs to introduce methodological and analytical improvements to a growing psychological research area.

Early help in Mental health

Sharon White - Tuesday, April 23, 2019 -

Research shows preventative interventions have a positive effect on children's mental health – but how strong is the

evidence behind this research? (What Works Centre for Children's Social Care) The What Works Centre has published

an evaluation of a study on preventative interventions and children's mental health. The study showed that these

interventions had a positive effect and the risk of children developing the same mental health problems as their parents

decreased by 40%. The What Works Centre assessed the strength of evidence used in this study as 'moderate' –

the second highest grading they award – and concluded that professionals in the UK can now have greater confidence

in the effectiveness of these interventions.
