Understanding the Client Who 'Lives Online'
While much fear and hype has been created in the past decade by well-meaning clinicians and the media, the actual role and effect of digital media on family life has yet to be fully understood and researched. So, what can a useful, caring mom, teacher, counselor or therapist offer today to families struggling with issues such as digital boundaries, cyberbullying and tech stressors, as well as problems like online gaming, gambling and sexuality? This timely, engaging talk, gives attendees a chance to revisit, reshape and challenge their beliefs about how digital technology is affecting family life, relationships, school, therapy and the workplace. Blending current research with historical references, this talk provides clarity in an area where many can be under-informed or even downright confused.
