Black Mirror: the influence of technology and social media on the therapeutic relationship.


10 years ago the iPhone was first released. Today, 80% of the UK population own a smartphone and spend an average 2 and 3/4 hours a day using it, mostly on social media. Smartphones and social media are changing the way we communicate with one another, as well as influencing the way we see ourselves and the world.


How can we as therapists respond to these changes? Can we use technology and social media as a therapeutic tool? What about our own relationship with technology?


Max Dalda Müller, is a teacher, trainer and counsellor in private practice. He has felt the presence and impact of technology in the lives of his clients and in his personal experience. Sometimes it has been a useful tool which brings people together. At other times it has been the cause of discord, arguments and conflict. At its worst, it has developed into addiction and isolation.


Max will explore these issues in his talk and will also focus on his own personal attempt at doing a digital detox.
