We regret to inform you that due to government regulations around the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we need to cancel our Vancouver Conference at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond, set to take place from April 16-18, 2020. 

We are simply postponing the whole conference intact to our 2021 annual conference at the same venue from April 8-10, 2021.

We sincerely regret any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you for your continued support of the Neufeld Institute. We look forward to seeing you in person next year!

Emotional Health in the Digital World
Evening Public Address by Dr. Gordon Neufeld

Unfortunately for our children, the digital world is not only a highly wounding world but also interferes with the conditions required to recover from the stress it creates. It is not surprising therefore that the deterioration of emotional health in our children and youth so closely parallels the increase in digital preoccupation, both generally in society as well as in specific cases. There is no option for turning the clock back. Our only hope is to move forward to create the kinds of practices and rituals that will serve to safeguard their emotional health and well-being in the world they now inhabit. Dr. Neufeld will provide some practical suggestions for how to do this, at home or at school.
