A Child's Mind on Tech: Helping Children Establish Healthy Relationships with Technology

A Child’s Mind on Technology: Helping Children Establish Healthy Relationships with Technology

This is a FREE training event. 

CATTA Statewide Virtual Conference

Date: Tuesday, July 18, 2023

Time: 10:30AM - 2:30PM

Where: Online via Zoom



With the proliferation of technology at our fingertips, and an overabundance of stimulation just a click away, we ask… what effect does technology have on a child’s mind? This year’s Statewide CATTA virtual conference, "A Child’s Mind on Technology,” will provide research-based methods to help children establish healthier relationships with technology. Speakers will explore the links between technology, addiction, and resilience, and share tips and tools to help parents and children manage its use.

With talks from Dr. Anna Lembke, MD, (Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University and the author of "Dopamine Nation") and Dr. Jenny Radesky, MD, (Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Michigan), this conference will provide beneficial information for individuals working directly with children -- and anyone hoping to establish a more-balanced relationship with technology in their lives.
