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.
