Too much screen time? Dealing with the new social anxiety

Wondering where to even begin?

As the pandemic continues, clients and therapists alike are reeling from pervasive anxiety, increased rumination as well as the neurobiological and psychoemotional impact of increased online presence in work AND play.

Margaret Wehrenberg has been presenting on these topics for a few years now and we invite you to join her for an upcoming free 1-hour online conversation:

Virtual Lunch Together with Margaret Wehrenberg, PsyD
Wednesday, December 2, 2020
12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT (Toronto, New York) UTC – 4

Participation is FREE but registration is required.

Can’t Attend Live? All registrants will receive a recording afterwards! Sign up!


Dr. Wehrenberg will be sharing insights into:

  • how she became interested in working with anxious clients,
  • how the fields of CBT and neuroscience have impacted her approach to depression and anxiety
  • as well as her observations about how clients and therapists are being affected by the pervasiveness of online activities, video-gaming and 24-7 connectivity through smart devices

 

Time will be set aside for audience Q & A during this live interactive Zoom meeting event.

Dr. Wehrenberg is known for offering practical and yet profoundly nuanced approaches to complex cases with warmth and humour. We hope you will be able to join us.

Registration is free but required.

The New Social Anxiety: Mental Health and Social Balance in the Age of Social Media and the Internet

Live Broadcast: Dec. 4, 10 am – 5 pm (Webinar will be recorded and available for On Demand access afterwards)

Explore the neurobiological impact of screen time, gaming and social media. You will learn practical strategies to help offset the addictive nature of new technology and more.

 


Disrupting Rumination: Changing the Thoughts that Underlie Anxiety and Depression

Live Broadcast: Jan. 8, 10 am – 5 pm (Webinar will be recorded and available for On Demand access afterwards)

Whether clients experience depressive themes of worthlessness and inadequacy or the anxious full-of-dread cognitions, repetitive patterns of negative thoughts keep people locked into distress. In this webinar, we’ll explore pragmatic, achievable solutions to disrupt the rumination and stuck behaviours, eliminating these patterns and replacing them with attitudes of calmness and competency.

ALL WEBINARS ARE RECORDED! Can’t stay for an entire training? You won’t miss a thing…. All registrants will receive access to the recorded webinar for a full year after the live broadcast date.
