Attachment to screens versus attachment to people has become a phenomenon. Styles of insecure attachment occur and the use of digital devices claims more and more time for parents/caregivers and children. Children state, “What do you mean? You can’t take away my phone, tablet, TV, computer, or Alexa!” Parents feel pressured about what to allow and when, as well as how to keep children cyber safe.
In this workshop, we’ll creatively process both children’s desire for and reliance on electronics, as well as their parents’ use. Issues covered include eye contact with humans, social skills, anxiety, depression, radioactive emissions, earbuds, and the effect of devices on the developing brain. Screenplay has many positives and many negatives. Learn the evidence-based practices for enhancing the joys and freedoms of electronic devices for children ages 3 to 10, as well as practicing the well-documented five M’s and the use of expressive therapeutic skills.
Clinicians are encouraged to bring in case scenarios and examples from their own practices, as we will process creative approaches to addressing those issues.
