About this event


Is technology ripping your family apart?

Worrying about how much someone in your family is using their devices?

This is the workshop for you!

Problematic Internet Use is not just about the amount of time someone spends on screens. It is about the impact that screen time has on your life, the changing of priorities and the damage to real life relationships, that are defining characteristics of a problem.

During this workshop we will help you to understand why screen use has become so overwhelmingly difficult to disconnect from and the steps you can take to work toward a more balanced use.

Whether you feel that you and your family are at the top of the slippery slope to device use being problematic or if you have identified that there is already a problem, this workshop will help you to set out an easy to implement plan with a step-by-step guide and an agreement to regain or maintain control of device time.

Attendees will learn to identify the most addictive sites and apps, the hooks they use to keep users online and the steps that they can take to make conscious screen time decisions.

We start with an awareness presentation identifying:

• what defines problematic screen use (formerly known as screen overuse or addiction)

• the hooks that make screens addictive;

• symptoms a user may feel when screens have become problematic;

• the most successful intervention strategies; and

• the psychological barriers a user faces when an intervention is suggested

Then we work through what steps a family can take to work together towards a more balanced use of technology.

The focus of the session is not just about reducing screen time, but about identifying impacts screen time is having on your family and making adjustments, so that technology plays a more positive role in your life.
