Event description

Description

The Impact of Technology on the Developing Brain

6:30: Reception
7:00: Speaker

The digital age has created a plethora of opportunities and challenges for teachers, parents and their children. Children are raised with digital awareness that typically far exceeds that experienced by their parents. Childrens' experience with digital technology is occurring at a time when parents are occupied with parenting and careers and, interestingly, are not as capable at developing digital facility as their children. What is a parent to do?

This workshop will discuss parental challenges insofar as understanding the impact of digital technology upon their children, the tangential (but still important) effects that digital technology is exerting, and how to parent effectively through all of this uncertainty. To be fair, there is still so much to be understood about this fascinating domain. However, despite these limitations, current research is able to provide us with interesting insights and, we will discuss those insights and translate them into practical parental strategies.

Dr. Solomon is the Co-Founder and Clinical Director of Delta Consultants, a multi-disciplinary agency in Providence, Rhode Island providing a diverse array of evaluation, therapy and consultation services to children, adolescents, families and schools.

He is co-author of Paternal Deprivation and Child Maltreatment, past editor of Rhode Island Families magazine, co-founder of the annual Parenting Matters conference in Rhode Island and frequent presenter locally and nationally on clinical and developmental issues related to children and families.
