Personal Relationships in the Digital Age

Personal Relationships in the Digital Age

Princeton, NJ March 1, 2013 - Few advances in technology have presented such extremes of wonderful possibilities and such questions and challenges as do social media and digital communication. Have you ever used the Internet to reconnect with an old friend or distant relative? Do you keep in nearly constant contact with friends by texting them? Have you ever been frustrated when someone interrupts a conversation with you to receive a text or cell phone call? Do you ever wonder if you have more Facebook friends than "real" friends? Explore the great potential as well as the pitfalls of digital-age communication with licensed psychologists, Virginia Whitener, Ph.D. and W.B. Apple, Ph.D., and board-certified psychiatrist Peter A. Crist, M.D. for "Personal Relationships in the Digital Age," a discussion on Saturday, April 6, 2013 at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ from 4:00PM to 6:00PM.

All three experts bring a wide range of professional experience to this event. They all work with children, adults and families. Dr. Whitener is very interested in the current sociological and psychological changes in our society, and how they affect mental health and social relationships. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Apple is director of psychological services at the Lawrenceville School where he works with teenagers. He is particularly interested in healthy adolescent development and the challenges young people face today in terms of intense academic pressures, increased acceptance of substance abuse, and ever-constant technological distractions. Dr. Crist has developed an expertise in couples therapy as well as a business consulting practice with a functional approach to finding satisfaction in one's work life. Each has their distinct views about how the digital age has impacted the way families, friends, and work colleagues (peers, bosses and subordinates) relate to each other.
