Join us on Wednesday April 3rd, 7.30pm at Churchlands Concert Hall for a free, informative, fact-filled presentation from Canadian therapist, researcher, writer, author and international speaker, Dr Mari Swingle.
Dr Swingle is a practicing therapist, clinical researcher and the author of i-Minds How Cell Phones, Computers, Gaming, and Social Media are Changing our Brains, Our Behaviours and the Evolution of our species.
Her research shows how our excessive or otherwise inappropriate use of screens are affecting brain function and behaviour, and she wants to remove confusing and ambiguous language from the "screen time" conversation.
She will be presenting the science of screen time in simple terms to help assist parents, teachers, healthcare practitioners to help make informed choices and decide what aspects of screen-based technology to accept, embrace, or reject, and what aspects deserve further consideration.
In this workshop, Dr Swingle will explore otherwise complex and specialised concepts in language that is clear and easy to understand.
