San Jose Cell Phone / Smartphone Addiction Treatment for Social Media Overuse

Adolescents and teens today are interacting through their smartphones more than ever.  It’s just a totally different world today than the one we grew up in as parents.  Simply put, if your child depends on you to tell them to put their device down, they are headed for disaster when they leave home after high school.  If your child wants to do well in college, what are their chances of success if they have not learned the skills to self-regulate their electronics use?

About half of college freshmen will ever receive a diploma.  A small investment now in Summerland Camps will help your child learn the skills they need to successfully manage their technology use.

How We Create Behavior Change

At Summerland Camps, campers have a fun summer away from screen based activities.  They learn how to socialize and develop interests apart from gaming or social media.  For each sport, hobby, or skill we teach, we focus on fundamentals to develop a sense that the participant has really mastered the skill.


Self-efficacy is defined as the extent to which a person believes he or she is capable of accomplishing a task under certain conditions (Bandura, 1997).   Often campers believe that they are quite capable in one subject (like playing video games) while they, “just can’t get” another (like socializing, or sports).  Therefore self-efficacy is not a stable across all areas of performance.  Even those of us who are extremely high achievers in one area admit to inability in other areas.
