Entangled in Cyberspace

Psychotherapeutic work with internet addictions and virtual attachments

With speakers John Beveridge, Linda Cundy, Catherine Knibbs and Andrea Marzi

Saturday 24 June 2017

We live in a rapidly changing technical environment with an overwhelming number of possibilities for virtual communication. While such modes of relating are increasingly normalised, we wonder how this is impacting on the mental health of our society and the people who come to therapy? Our four speakers will ask what emotional states and relational configurations are produced when we relate to the world online, exploring attachment behaviour, internet addiction, subjection to violence, bullying, or unwanted sexual content on social media pages. How are such interactions affecting our sense of safety, connectedness, identity, selfhood and experience of the other - and the therapy relationship itself?
