“Am I Addicted to My Phone?” : Healthy Ways to Use Technology Without Getting Hooked

October 23, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Presented by Loren Brown (Counseling and Psychological Services). Interactive technology is a useful and integrated part of modern life, yet a growing number of people say it’s causing them problems. As a society we are spending more and more time looking at screens, whether it’s social media or video games, on smart phones or tablets, or even measuring steps, heart rate, and sleep using a fitness tracker. Some people describe their use of these technologies as excessive, obsessive, or even call it an addiction. In this presentation, Brown, a psychologist, will describe why we get hooked, the warning signs of an addiction, and healthy ways of using technology for connection, self-expression, and recreation.
