Adolescent Therapist, Michael Blanche, MSS, LCSW, spoke with families and educators about the seemingly innocuous, but potentially harmful exposure to technology that children in today’s society are experiencing. The development of the internet and related technology has provided us with some wonderful possibilities, but with that comes a great deal of over-exposure, misinformation, and the potential to become desensitized and far too dependent on computers, gaming devices, smart phones, and more. This dependency strikes young people in a unique way. We had a dynamic conversation about strategies we can implement to maintain a healthy balance of the place technology has in our ever-changing lives.
