519 – Breaking the Spell of Our Digital Devices

Helping Clients Embrace a More Embodied Life
Linda Graham

There’s no question that our near constant use of the internet, apps, and texting have transformed how we relate to each other. The ubiquity of our devices and the huge bite they’ve taken out of authentic, in-person communication has become a pressing mental health concern that therapists are just beginning to address. In this workshop, you’ll explore how to help clients assess the impact of their overuse of digital technologies, and teach them how to balance it out for a more fully embodied life. You’ll discover:

  • Emerging research on the long-term effect of digital devices on attention, empathy, friendships, and self-reflection
  • How technology contributes to digital addiction and emotional constriction in clients’ lives
  • Protocols for digital detoxes that can help clients reduce brain fog, mood swings, loneliness, and isolation, all while promoting better sleep, more authentic relationality, and enhanced well-being
  • How to help clients reawaken to “real life” relationships, tolerate messy emotions, and get comfortable with solitude and intimacy
