Speaker: Holli Kenley, M.A., MFT 

Many parents sense intuitively that electronic screen activity has unwanted effects on their children’s behavior and mood, but are unsure what to do about it.”(Dunkley, 2015). “Parents and teens are both affected by the influences of our screen-saturated lives, but young people experience the effects with ferocious intensity.”(Koch, 2015). With a thorough investigation of electronic consumption and of current research validating the consequences of interactive and passive screen-time on developing children as well as on adult populations, participants will also examine effective interventions.

Pre-registration is required.

Course Learning Goals and Objectives:

    • Participants will be able to describe and discuss background knowledge on screen dependence including the following: clinical relevance and therapeutic importance; new clinical vocabulary as well as a review of terminology in association with presenting pathology and symptomology; and limitations to research.
    • Participants will be able to describe and discuss the most common neurological, physiological, emotional, psychological, relational or social, and behavioral manifestations as the result of interactive and passive screen-time.
    • Participants will be able to identify and articulate how the following occurrences are directly correlated to interactive and/or passive connectedness with electronic devices: frequent misdiagnosis of presenting symptomatology, the exacerbation of existing pathology, and the creation of new pathology.
    • Participants will be able to compare and contrast the symptoms/manifestations of Electronic Screen Syndrome (Dunkley, 2015) with presenting symptomatology of other clinical disorders and evaluate their respective therapeutic implications and considerations.
