"iDisorder: Understanding Our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us"
Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod speak with Dr. Larry Rosen, author of "iDisorder: Understanding Our Obsession with Technology and Overcoming Its Hold on Us"
Dr. Rosen says iDisorder: changes to your brain’s ability to process information and your ability to relate to the world due to your daily use of media and technology resulting in signs and symptoms of psychological disorders - such as stress, sleeplessness, and a compulsive need to check in with all of your technology. Based on decades of research and expertise in the "psychology of technology," Dr. Larry Rosen also offers explanations for why many of us are suffering from an "iDisorder." How do we stay human in an increasingly technological world.
