EVENT DESCRIPTION

From letter writing to telephones, from pagers to mobile phones, from smartphones to…augmented reality? Our method of personal communication with each other over long distances has evolved over the past one hundred years in such a dramatic way. But, what we once had as close personal interaction with those around us at home, as neighbors, as people in our immediate community and businesses we now have lumped together with what was once used exclusively for long distance relationships all courtesy of our own personal, portable communication devices.

With more and more of our social interactions taking place via the smartphone, from those right next to us to those halfway around the world, how is this affecting us psychologically? What have we gained, and lost in this marvel of the modern age? How can we neutralize the damaging effects while we continue to benefit from it.

Please Join us and our guest speaker Dr. Thomas Ellis, PsyD as he describes the effect the smartphone has on our personal, intimate and social interactions from a clinical perspective. How problems have arisen within these three spheres and its psychological consequences and what might be done about it now and in the future.
