Youtube presentation on
The impact of screen time on teenagers.
Nicole Runyon is a US based Adolescent Psychotherapist. She maintains that there is an increase in depression, anxiety and severe anger in the generation of adolescents who have been raised with screens. In her talk, she explores why today’s teens lack empathy, how technology affects social and emotional development. Moreover, how this lack of empathy and disconnect affects adolescents who have been bullied, and the extreme ways in which adolescents now feel isolated, dehumanized, and alienated. link to video
