Gaming, social networks, and compulsive behavior

We recently held a parent evening with Jerald Block, M.D., psychiatrist and expert on internet addiction. Dr. Block provided the group with a highly data-based analysis of the issues, focusing our attention on real issues that merit our concern and debunking popular, politically-motivated misconceptions about the effects of technology on kids. We had a large turnout for the event, demonstrating parents’ concern and desire to learn more about this field.

Please visit the Catlin Gabel web site to listen to the presentation and view Dr. Block’s slides. (We have permission to post them there.)
