In this session, Dr. Nahal Delpassand will be discussing social media and the epidemic of isolation.
Do you get irritated when you can’t find your phone and you’ve heard the notification jingle? Do you wake up and immediately reach for your phone? How about those few minutes of free time during the day – do you find yourself compulsively scrolling through your social media news feed? If you’re like thousands of other Americans, you probably can’t imagine a day without social media. This incredible technology has connected us like never before, yet we rarely stop and think about the impacts it has on our lives and relationships. In this webinar, she will discuss:
– The growing body of research that highlights this relationship
– The Impact of the “Like” on the brain and connection to addiction
– Observations from my own clinical practice
– Tips and tools for navigating a balance between logging on and logging off
