Digital Media: From Addiction to Cure

Join us for RMSA's 2018 Faculty Speaker event!

Digital media addiction may well be the epidemic of our time. What does science tell us about its biological causes? Can anything be done to wean ourselves off, or did our brains simply not evolve to consume Internet-related technologies safely and in responsible doses? Beyond addiction, what personality traits come out online and how are they transforming society and culture? Finally, as the negative psychological impact of these technologies is increasingly recognized, what positive applications exist, including in the field of telepsychiatry and the treatment of digital addiction itself? This talk will discuss the intersection of technology and psychology, focusing both on the risks and positive potential. 

Note: This talk was previously titled "How Online Impulsivity is Turning Us into an Impulse-Driven Culture" and has been updated upon the request of the speaker.
