If you look at a group of people passing idle time on public transport, in a waiting room, before a show or having lunch in the park you would be hard-pressed to find anyone who isn’t scrolling, tapping or staring at a screen.
The internet, and social media in particular, have become such an entrenched part of daily life for many people that they are hardly aware of how inextricably fixated they are, often to the exclusion of the world around them.
Social media is undoubtedly invaluable as a tool, but with it comes insidious dangers – cyberbullying, unhealthy competitiveness, obsession and so on.
To address these issues and offer helpful advise on staying safe and well online, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is holding a discussion session featuring Clinical Psychologist Louise Remond from the UTS Health Psychology Unit, and technology education expert and UTS Alumna, Kristy Goodwin.
