The digital world is here to stay, changing our society in a ways that have far reaching consequences for our children. What are the implications for raising children? How do we harness the spectacular connecting potential and yet avoid the pitfalls of attachment technology gone awry? How do we prepare them to live in this new world and yet preserve what is required for healthy development to take place? We have followed our children into the digital world and yet for their sakes as well as ours, need to restore our lead in order to avoid the insidious dangers that live in the shadows of this potent technology. Dr. Neufeld will look at the digital revolution as a developmentalist committed to helping adults help children become all they were meant to be. Location: University of Calgary, Murray Fraser Hall 162. Parking is on the South side of the University.
